I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cisco can do this, don't know what you are using though, so, your mileage may vary!
Craig BeckCommented:
Yes, providing the bridges pass 802.1Q frames.

Cisco bridges will only do this if you configure each VLAN on the unit at each end, so every time you add a VLAN to your switches you have to add it to the bridges too.  It's OK if you only have a few VLANs but not if you have hundreds, for example.

Other vendors' kit will transparently pass 802.1Q frames.  Alvarion, Ubiquiti, Infinet and Bridgewave (to name a few) will be good choices.
