I have a pix 515 e and an HP1810 switch . I want to create a new lan for a sub tenant in the same building. I assigned the subnet to the new lan and created a physical interface on the pix as a gateway, I created a vlan on the switch (vlanid 2)and assigned 6 ports to vlan id 2 ( the new lan) .  I will plug the interface into a vlanid2 .How do set the gateway ip for the vlan network to ?

You just set the address as the gateway for all devices that are on vlan id 2.

In the switch web interface (do not see)?.. or on the pc interface card or a wireless router on the subnet?

so the switch management interface only needs to be on one of the vlans so it does not need to have 2 default gateways configured.  The PCs that will live on the new subnet will need to have the configured as their gateway.

Yes that is exactly what i am saying.  Just keep the switch management interface which is layer 3 on your network.  Just connect the firewall interface for on a port with the new vlan.  Plug the tenant into those ports and let them know that their gateway is

Thats it!
