I have two identical Netgear 24-port PoE switches, GS724TPS that have been stacked via HDMI cable as one logical unit. This is a set up for a small business with less than 25 end users and I want to use two VLANs, one for data and one for voice because they plan to use a Quadro IP system for their phones and I want to segregate ...

I also have a Netgear VPN/Firewall with is connected to the WAN (dual bonded T1 connection) and the Netgear switches are connected directly to the Netgear VPN/Router/Firewall...

I followed the instructions but can't seem to see how to setup two VLANs. I don't want to use the built in Voice Vlan function in Netgear, instead just want to create a VLAN 2 and use that as voice (named it as voice)... but this is first configured on the switch or on the Firewall?

I'm thinking just to do a simple static route on the firewall for inter-vlan switching/routing.... but I'm not sure is this configured on the switch or firewall first?

So I created the second VLAN, and used the port based membership for assignment... but once I assign the selected ports to VLAN 2, how do I know what IP address it is set to? Are these VLAN 2 IPs default to something that I don't know about? How can I set them to the 192.168.10.X subnet? (the rest of my native VLAN network is on 192.168.1.X... I thought I needed to switch the management VLAN to VLAN 2 in order to assign the IP address to the ports that I placed into VLAN 2, but once I did that I immediately got locked out of the switch entirely and had to do a factory reset.

What am I missing or doing wrong here? Does Netgear have a CLI that emulates Cisco's IOS that I can use instead of the web interface?
