Hi JamesAnctil,

Yes this is possible! VLANs are actually simpler than they sound. Whatever the device (managed switch, AP with VLAN capability, etc) tags the packet and from there it can go through anything...managed or unmanaged until it reaches a layer 3 device that understands VLANs to route it.

This might benefit you to look at; it's an older Tech Note & it talks about Cisco switches but the overall principle still applies.

This technote will document how to integrate a VLAN-capable Ethernet switch with a SonicWALL device running SonicOS Enhanced: http://www.sonicwall.com/app/projects/file_downloader/document_lib.php?t=TN&id=49

Also, check out Solution #4, it's exactly what you are trying to do (I believe): http://www.sonicwall.com/app/projects/file_downloader/document_lib.php?t=TN&id=44
