I am a complete newb when it comes to VLANs, unfortunately the documentation that came with the Dell switches I have hasn't really helped my learning curve. I have six Dell PowerConnect 2716's and I need some network seperation.
To seperate our two production networks (A & B), keeping data seperate, but allowing them to use the same Internet connection. The two networks are pretty small at the moment, so if necessary they could use the same switch, but I'd prefer to keep them on a switch each.
To extend the network seperation to a further three networks (C, D & E). I have a similar requirment here, to keep data between the networks seperate, but allow the use of the same Internet connection.
