I have a Cisco 2612 router connected to a Netgear GS724T Smart Switch.  I want to to trunk the ethernet interface on the router for two VLANs so I can sparate one of the devices on the switch on to a different subnet.  

I have tested my router config on a differnt switch with two sub interfaces and I am able to route to both subnets.  However when I cannot figure out the corect configuration on the netgear.  I double checked that it supports the trunking protocal (IEEE 802.1Q).  I have tried every combination of "Tagged", "Untagged", and "Not a Member" I can think of and still it will not route.
- The router interface is already subdivided for VLAN 1 and VLAN 2
- The router is plugged into port 1 on the switch
- The server I want on VLAN 2 is plugged into port 17 on the switch
- I want all other switch ports on VLAN 1 (this is the default VLAN)

Has anyone used these switched before for this kind of thing?
