Hello,

Need an advice buying a switch to cater for 2 servers, a NAS drive and 35 workstations. Requirements:

48 GB ports
vlans
vlans share the same internet connection, but are otherwise isolated

Also, what router would you recommend for it? Or could a Layer 3 switch do the job without a router?

Thanks!
