Hello people we have a client that has an office building that will house 3 diffrent companies.

The building owner will provide a pix firewall and internet access for all companies. (Gatway adress is 192.168.1.1)

The thing is that the networks must be seperated so that they cannot access each others networks. About 22 users in all.

The only thing that we want is that all of the users in the diffrent VLANs to able ta access is the 192.168.1.1
gateway (firewall)

Any suggestions regarding choice of brand and so on. They dont need traffic management.

Have a nice day.

If you already have a Cisco PIX, my vote goes to staying with Cisco.
The 3550 series provides layer 3 capabilities to assign access-lists, but with private VLAN's you don't need acls.
The 3560 and 3750 series provides a wide range of capabilities including the Private VLANs/protected ports, and Community VLAN's, along with full layer 3 capabilities.

The "isolated" private VLAN function is where I would focus:
