Cisco Router GigabitEthernet interface can not add ip address?

Router(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 2/1
Router(config-if)#ip add ?
% Unrecognized command
Router(config-if)#ip add 12.12.12.1 255.255.255.0
                  ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

who can tell me where is the issue?

my device is CGR1240.

  • There can be a few possibilities. Typically on a router, only the routed port (WAN) can have an IP address. Sometimes the port is by default a switchport, so that it needs no switchport before you can actually add an IP address. You could try to post the full configuration and show version. – user36472 Oct 31 '18 at 8:57

From Cisco documentation:

Port Configuration

The Cisco CGR 1120 has 8 Ethernet ports: 6 FE ports, and 2 GE switch ports. The Cisco CGR 1240 has 6 Ethernet ports: 4 FE ports and 2 GE switch ports. On both of the CGRs, you can configure the 2 GE ports to operate in Layer 2 mode or the default Layer 3 mode. You can convert the switch to Layer 2 mode by using the switchport command.

Note: Layer 2 switching is hardware switched. Layer 3 switching is software forwarding.

  • The FE ports are 100BaseT Layer 2. Traffic between different VLANs on a switch is routed through the router platform using the switched virtual interface (SVI). You can configure FE switch ports as Layer 3 (routed) ports by configuring the no switchport command on interface fastethernet x/y . By default, FE switch ports are Layer 2.

  • The GE ports are 1000BaseT Layer 2. Traffic between different VLANs on a switch is routed through the router platform using the switched virtual interface (SVI). You can configure GE switch ports as Layer 2 ports by configuring the switchport command on interface gigabit ethernet x/y . By default, GE ports are Layer 3 (routed ports). Any switch port can be configured as a trunking port to connect to other Cisco Ethernet switches.

The CG-Mech product you should pay attention, from the document:

all the port, no matter FastEthernet or GigabitEthernet if you want to configure ip address, you should set no switchport firstly.
