Implementing VLANs on our network
Posted on 2007-08-02
Hello, we want to implement VLANs into our current network. I know how to create them and whatnot within our PFsense firewall, but it's the hardware side I don't quite understand yet. Currently, we have 3 24 port 3com baseline switched that do not support 802.1q. Were thinking of buying a 10 port managed switch that supports 802.1q. Could I then assign VLAN 1 to port 1 on the switch, then connect a switch that doesn't support 802.1q to that port and still have all computers connecting to this second switch have access and work on VLAN 1? And have the same go for VLAN 2 - VLAN 10? Let me know if I'm not explaining this thoroughly. Thanks!!
