Hi List,

we bought our first cisco for use at lan-party some days ago and now need 48 port fe modules.


Cisco6509 with dual Sup2


directly connecting all PCs via 10/100 connections in seperated vlans and
Upstream via OSPF and equal cost multipath default routes to two routers via gbit on supervisor.

Can anyone explain the difference between the cards ws-x6148 and ws-x6348? Both are relatively cheap available on the bay. I read about some problems with the x-6348 on the list. Seems that they have same buffer sizes and I am not able to find a difference.

Is the above mentioned a usable configuration for this application?

Is it possible to use all 4 gig ports of the supervisors as equal cost uplinks in parallel or is the second supervisor engine only active as backup?

Ok, hope for reply!

Best regards & merry Christmas!
