Split PowerConnect 2716 Switch in Half Using VLANs?
Posted on 2007-10-12
Is it possible to use a Dell PowerConnect 2716 switch to have two separate networks, with different default gateways? I've never configured a switch with VLAN capability.
What I am trying to do is have ports 1-8 be on one network (192.168.1.0) with a router connected to DSL modem/line, and have ports 9-16 be on a different network (192.168.2.0) with a router connected to a cable modem.
I do not want the two networks to be able to talk to each other. Essentially I am trying to use one switch to act as two.
If this is possible, can someone explain what configuration changes I would need to make?
Thanks for any help,
