Scenario
----------

You have a switched network with about 500 clients on a particular physical subnet. The clients on this subnet are getting their TCP/IP configuration settings from a W2K DHCP server configured with a "superscope" which has two member scopes (multinets).  Each member scope defines a Class C network with default subnet mask. The clients can therefore get an IP address from one or the other scope.

QUESTION
------------

My question is if you were to implement VLANs on the switches, is it possible for members of a VLAN to belong to two different  IP networks?

Thanks.

Hamid

If two subnets exist inside one VLAN, the two subnets will not be able to communicate with each other without some Layer 3 function of the switch, or a router of some type.
