    show interface status

    Wireless Mouse

      Hello,

       

      My name is goodboy and he is favio

       

      favio: goodboy I have a question for you

       

      goodboy: what is that?

       

      favio: why the command ''show interface status'' works for switches and not for routers?

       

      goodboy: what do you mean, can you be more clear in your question? express yourself!

       

      favio: Ok look I configured Fa 0/0 on R2 in the following manner:

       


      R2#show run inter fa 0/0
      Building configuration...

      Current configuration : 95 bytes
      !
      interface FastEthernet0/0
      ip address 172.30.0.2 255.255.255.0
      speed auto
      full-duplex
      end

       

      goodboy: And ?

       

      favio: When I do ''show interface status'' it does not show anything, look!

       

      R2#show interface status

      R2#

       

      favio:well should not show in the same way as it does for a switch? for example like this:

       


      Switch#show inter status

      Port      Name               Status       Vlan       Duplex  Speed Type
      Fa0/1                        connected    1          a-full  a-100 10/100BaseTX
      Fa0/2                        connected    1          a-full  a-100 10/100BaseTX

       

      goodboy: Thats true favio, why the ''show inter status'' is not showing on the router?

       

      favio: why are you asking me goodboy? thats the very same question I am asking you!

       

      goodboy: favio I am not asking you! I am asking everyone on this forum

          "show interface status"  on routers might work if u have that switching module installed;

          otherwise use show ip int brief for routers

            Favio: Hello martin long time we dont see you!!

             

            goodboy: Hello martin we did miss you!

             

            favio: But martin  show ip inter br does not show the speed or if it full or half duplex

             

            goodboy: thats correct favio, show him

             

            favio: Ok I will show him

             

             

            R2#show ip inter br

            Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Prot                            ocol

            FastEthernet0/0            172.30.0.2      YES NVRAM  up                    up                             

            Serial0/0                  172.30.10.2     YES NVRAM  up                    up

             

            goodboy: I guess what martin meant was ''show inter fa 0/0''

             

             

            R2#show inter fa 0/0

            FastEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up

              Hardware is AmdFE, address is 000e.8485.8820 (bia 000e.8485.8820)

            favio: But martin is right, show interface status is not working as we don't have that switching module installed

             

            goodboy: what command can I use to see if that module is installed on the router and whats the name of the module?

              there is a command, try sh interfaces capabilities  if not that one, maybe I will remember it later ...

                  On a modular switch, "show hardware" typically gives modules.  Also, "show diag" will give more detail about things including what's in each slot.

                    sh int status module X has been a big help to me at work lately on some 4506 upgrades...includes vlans on ports for comparisons against the old box... great if your ports in vlans are all over the place on the line cards...

                      Favio: Thanks guys for the information, I have tried all of them and show ver is not the same as show hardware? I can not see any difference. Also show inter capa only works for switches no routers
