We have a lan with 185 nodes on it. The netork diagram is attached.
We had standard switches but recently the network has been very slow. we have just acquired a lot of 4 cisco switches.
1 x 48 Port 3750G
3 x 24 Port 3759G
- I will like to install the switches to provide connectivity to the nodes on my lan. Further I will like to split my LAN into three VLANS so that I can reduce latency on the LAN.
I want to 3 Vlans for ( DIrectors , Finance and Rest of Staff )
I want to give priority to Directors and Finance on the LAN
I need everyone to still get IP address from the DHCP Server
I will like to use the following 188.8.131.52 / 255.255.252.0
How can I further split the subnets to get all of this working and get some stability on my dying lan ?
Can I configure VTP Server on one of the switches ? If Yes, how do I interconnect the switches on the various floors. Each switch has 4 gigabit ports in addition to the ethernet ports.
Kindly assist me with a complete configuration.
