Hi guys

I have an HP network 1820-48G J9981A switch. We have a network range on this switch. It has been set with a IP. Prior to this, our network switch was completely vanilla and had no IP configurations.

Now, majority of appliances plugged into this network are on the range. However, we have 7-8 devices set to range. So now, we are completely unable to get to anything on the IP's, as the switch is currently only seeing the

My question is, what's the best way now to configure this switch? I don't want to reset it to factory default as we won't have any management. So do I set up VLAN's on all ports? How would you do it?

Or, can I set routing on the switch to say anything on network needs to be forwarded on to the gateway?

Thanks for helping
