comment What does 'Si' mean with respect to network switches?
No, the Catalyst 2950 did not exist in the 1990s, and that is when the Si icon in question was first marketed. Perhaps you got the idea that it's "Standard Image" from Leo Laohoo's answer; while Leo is usually spot-on, in this case he's quite full of poo. The answer from acampbell on the same page is correct (and provides proof).

comment CISCO WS-C4948-10GE SFP+?
When you say "Is there an X2 module that supports this?" What precisely is the problem you're solving? You want a 3rd party X2 10GE optic? If so, single mode or multimode? How long is the fiber shot and is the fiber 50 micron OM3?

comment Switch to switch encryption over a wireless bridge (TrustSec?)
@metatheorem, 802.3 ethernet and 802.11 wifi are quite different protocols; among the most basic differences are MTU and 802.11's requirement for frame ACKs. Wifi APs and Bridges which provide connectivity between a physical wire and RF are by-definition much more than a repeater.

comment Adding ip routes for the additional WAN IPs on Cisco IOS?
@GeorgeBailey, I think the salient question is why the PC must access 888.0.0.8 to begin with. BTW, most of us would have an easier time understanding the question if our brains we're revolting from the illegal 888.x.x.x and 999.x.x.x addresses you've used. I understand you're trying to make this generic, but actually IETF generously provided some documentation IP address space: see RFC 5737
