RE: 3com 3870 vlan cknipe (MIS) 3 Aug 09 12:24 looks like its a l3 switch from the description:For Enterprise Ethernet networks needing a scalable, stackable, future-proof Gigabit Layer 2/3 switching and routing solution, the 3Com® SuperStack® 3 Switch 3870 24-Port is recommended.If its like the 4500's and 5500's you can type this from the CLI: example is for vlan 5:3810>en3810]vlan 53810][vlan5] description xxx3810][vlan5]int vlan 53810][int vlan5]ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0thats it. then just assign the vlan to a physical port on the switch and try to ping it.
