I have a Cisco Router 3640 Series with 2 ethernet interfaces. Pretty simple setup. I have a class c that is split up into two subnets. Each subnet has its own ethernet interface.
I have one Cisco Catalyst Switch 2900 Series that I am wanting to configure for 2 vlans that I am hoping will segregate my two subnets.
I've been reading up on it some and it doesn't seem complicated but I wanted to post here to see if there is anything I need to know/consider before diving into it. I want to limit the down-time to a minimul.
I had a duplexing issue that lrmoore helped me troubleshoot regarding the same network. A managed switch did resolve all errors and collisions but when both subnets were plugged directly into the switch not vlan'd, while we maintained connectivity to the outside world it seemed to cause problems internally. I am thinking vlan'ing would do the trick. Am I right? Or is there another/better solution?
