Can I use the same subnet on 2 ports ? Century Link (my fiber ISP) said they can't configure the 5660 to do this........ ????? !!!!
I have a Century Link provided 5660 for my internet connection with a supplied /29, port 2 is configured for internet, port 3 is unused, port 4 is for my voice service, and 5 is my uplink from Fiber.
I want to activate/have configured port 3 to use as another port for internet access that I can use in seperate Ubiquity Security Gateway , Port 2 currently is in another gateway/router for my lan. (I am upgrading hardware and want to have the new gear up and tested before making the switch. SO i want both systems running at the same time (2 different physical networks).
I have 5 public IPs to use so can use a different IP for teh USG. CL said i would have to either purchase another /29 or split mine into /30s. This doesn't seem correct to me. Why can't they configure 2 ports for my internet access. (I know i can just add another switch inline before my current gw/router, but i don't want to add a point of failure if i don't have to.)
