Vlan Routing

How do you route 2 different vlans on a cisco 2960g switch, which I believe is a layer 2 switch?

Layer 2 switches can't route.  If you want to route you need a layer 3 aware switch or a separate router.

This is correct. You need a router or an L3 switch like the Cisco 3550 or 3560 series or above.
If you use a router, you will need to setup subinterfaces on top of the physical interface and give them 802.1q encapsulation and appropriate VLAN ID designation.
Let me know if you have any questions!

thank you
While there was no solution per se as that switch cannot do what was asked, we did inform the asker of this and gave him equipment that would work. Thus, I think the points should be split between valheru and I.
