Hello,Bill Northrup ,Chris Greer and Florent Calvayrac ,
     May be the reason is my switch. Its model is
LS-3016, a 16 ports produced by Legend Inc.
     I have read all doc with the switch. It only support
VLAN and trunking,no fast etherchannel. May be I should buy
a new switch, which model do you  recommend? Cisco catalyst
3500 series?
