Also, can I have a mesh of tunnels between (3) different endpoints, so 3
different cisco 800's with (2) tunnels per 800 to the other (2) 800's, such
that (3) lan switches hanging off the lan side of the 800's appear to be all
3 meshed together AND PASS STP/CDP/VTP, etc ?

You should be able to deploy L2TPv3 with the smaller ISR routers... The 800
series support it (not sure what software feature set is needed...)

What is the smallest/cheapest cisco router that supports L2TPv3?


I work at an isp and have small/medium sized businesses that occasionally
want transparent lan connectivity between their sites (which are connected
via FTTH, DSL, Cable Modem).


Is L2TPv3 tunneling the way to go for something like that ?


I don't really want to set up all kinds of qinq or mpls l2vpn's in my core
if I can avoid it.


Also, tunneling endpoints at the customer premise seems that the
dslam/olt/cmts would not have to be wise at all about the tunneling


Lemme know your thoughts/suggestions please
