VLAN on Sonicwall

Hi Experts,

I have a sonicwall TZ205, 2 Internet lines, 30 desktops, 30 IP Phones, 2 Servers and bunch of printers. I want to keep 15 desktops and IP Phones using one internet line and remaining 15 on the second line. Still want to be able to access the servers and printers. How can i make this work? I know it is done through VLAN. Can you please provide me a step by step instruction on how to do it? Or is there any better way to make this happen. Please suggest.

The simple way would be with multiple subnets... One for the first set, one for the second, and a third for the printers and servers... Set the tagging of the third subnet to both 1 and 2 and  the first 2 will be able to see the third, but not each other... Create routes between subnets to finish up

why not just separate switches on separate interfaces routing out separately....

if you had a switch that could be vlans it would be better

however with the ip phones i could want qos on both networks

If you have the proper switches with vlans, you can do it that way also.... If the switch has enough ports you could do it on one... Adding switches will be a bit more complicated since you have to make sure the vlans are properly set to span the switches.
on the sonicwall you can have 2 ports for wan and 2 ports for lan..... cant you??

setup lan port 1 and have it route traffice out wan port 1 and then plug it into a switch

setup lan port 2 to route traffic to wan port 2 and then plug it into the switch

essentially you end up with 2 different networks....

the only downfall is the throughput.... especially with security services enabled

Its actually a new client, and they have a very poor cable management. None of the cable or port is labeled. And i need to finish the work within 8 -10 hours. If i create 2 separate subnets for workstations and a 3rd one for server and printers. Assign static ip addresses to devices so that they know which subnet they belong to, then tag both the subnets with the 3rd subnet. Am i thinking right? Is it somthing that is doable in less than 8 - 10 hours. Am i missing something?
