Hi,

The company bought a 4924 switch to divide the diffirent departments into vlans.
I'm testing out the switch and was able to create the vlans 2 and 3
Vlan 3 contains 10 ports.

The inteface of the vlan ip is 192.168.1.1 when I connect a client to one of the ports I have to give it an IP address manually, is there a way that this can be done by dhcp?

The main problem is that I can connect from the client to the switch but I cannot connect to an outside address.
The switch main's ip adres is 192.168.169.250, this address is randomly chosen.
I can tracert that ip (the tracert process is extremely slow) but when I try to tracert the ip-address of the router (192.168.169.254) it times out.

In the routing table 192.168.169.254 is defined as default gateway.

Can somebody help me solving this problem?
