Morning:

I'm new to the world of Cisco Packet tracer, and I am creating a network for a uni project. So far, what I have is:

5 VLANs (subnetted to 192.168.2.0/26, 192.168.3.0/36 etc)

All are connected to ports Gig 1/0/2 - 1/0/6 on a 3650 switch

The end devices are able to communicate with all the respective VLANs accordingly.

The VLANs all terminate at the switch and (I believed) trunked to port 1/0/24 which has an IP 192.168.40.1/30. Port 1/0/24 is then connected to a port on a generic PT router on port 9/0 with IP 192.168.40.2, which is also the default IP Router (Gateway of Last Resort).

From there, the router is connected to another router, both of which are in a subnet of 192.168.50.0/30 and then that router is connected to another 3650 switch on a subnet of 192.168.60.0/30.

The routers and switches can ping each other without an issue. I have set up routing by using EIGRP.

The issue that I seem to have is that no matter what I try, I cannot get the end devices' packets to go any further than the trunked port. Example ping results below:

Pinging the switch:

C:>ping 192.168.40.1 Pinging 192.168.40.1 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 192.168.40.1: bytes=32 time=11ms TTL=255 Reply from 192.168.40.1: bytes=32 time=35ms TTL=255 Reply from 192.168.40.1: bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=255 Reply from 192.168.40.1: bytes=32 time=36ms TTL=255

Pinging the router

C:>ping 192.168.40.2

Pinging 192.168.40.2 with 32 bytes of data:

I feel like I am so close to cracking this, but the link from 1/0/23 to 9/0 is still down, and I'm unsure how to bring it up to test it.

  • You'll need to add the (sanitized) switch config to your question, else we can't see how things are set up. – Zac67 Jul 2 at 9:40
  • I've added the running configs of the switch, and the router connected directly to the switch. – LordVader Jul 2 at 9:51
  • You did not enable routing on the switch. – Ron Maupin Jul 2 at 9:54
  • Really? I could have sworn that I did. – LordVader Jul 2 at 10:02
  • 1
    You also need the router to know about the networks on the other side of the switch, either with static routes, or through a routing protocol. – Ron Maupin Jul 2 at 11:01

You do not have EIGRP enabled on your (layer 3) switch, so the router and other devices don't know how to reach the networks on the switch.

And BTW, you are not trunking VLANs. The VLANs terminate on the switch. Port 1/0/24 is a routed interface, not a trunk port.

  • Hi Ron... I have now enabled EIGRP on the switch, but that has not resolved the issue. So I guess the next stage is to change 1/0/24 from a routed interface into a trunk port? – LordVader Jul 2 at 12:40
  • Sorry to be a pain... Do you know any good articles that could assist in what I need to do here? I have been banging my head against a proverbial brick wall for 3 days now, and am risking a divorce if I keep doing so lol. – LordVader Jul 2 at 12:43
  • Did you include all your interfaces in the router config (with network statements)? Do you see all your subnets on other routers? – Ron Trunk Jul 2 at 13:34
  • Hi Ron: There's nothing past the second switch at the moment. I'm just trying to get the end devices to be able to ping out to the second switch, and then I can configure the VLANs on that side – LordVader Jul 2 at 13:51
  • I have updated the ip routes to show EIGRP enabled correctly – LordVader Jul 2 at 14:04
