I have a network that appears not to be passing one vlan.  This is quite an odd situation.  I have a stack of switches that are made up of Cisco SGE 2000 24 and 48 port units.  My router and where all the vlans are being created is a Netgear FVS318N.

I have the standard vlan 1 plus 3,4,5, and 6.  All appear to work properly and communicate with each other as required except vlan 3.  For the simplicity of the installation and explaining it to other people - each vlan has it's own cable to the switch stack.  Obviously I have done something correctly as I'm able to ping IP addresses from one vlan to the other except for vlan 3.  Specifically vlan 3 is a 192.168.103.x subnet with a /32 subnet.  On the Cisco side I have the port coming in from the Netgear set as PVID 3 and only working with that vlan.  On the Netgear side I have it set the same.  On the Cisco side, devices on different ports that are set to vlan 3 are able to communicate with each other; same on the Netgear side.  Only issue seems to be when connecting the two.  Anyone have any idea of where to start?
