that entirely depends on the vlan setup.. if you have restricted inter vlan communcations then there may be a problem


The two VLANs are configured to see eachother.

There will be no problem if the user is moving in different location of same domain as long as the firewall does not block the same and both the network are able to ping each other.

If the user is moving from one subnet to other his laptop should be configured with the correct IP details of that subnet.If DHCP is configured in both subnets then it will be done automatically.The case with the wireless NIC will be same.
