I am trying to configure a packet tracer based on a scenario. I am wondering if there is a way to get a GigabitEthernet 0/5 and a GigabitEthernet 0/6 interface on any of the switches?

I have tried them all with no luck, and there is no expansion options to meet the requirement.

Suggestions are much appreciated

    Seems not (to my surprise I must admit), but what for? Since this is only an emulator in which you can't push traffic, there's no difference between fastethernet and gigabitethernet ports. It would be only a cosmetic difference.

  • Packet Tracer is very limited because it is only intended to get you through the CCNA exam.
