To allocate a port into a vlan on a CatOS based switch eg.

Port = 3/5

vlan = 10

From enable mode

set vlan 10 3/5

Hope this is what you were asking

you have to know where your laptop is plugged into the switch . Vlan assignment is done on a per port assignement on the switch itself. There is nothing on the laptop itself you can do to put it into a particular vlan .

You will have to talk to your network guy and find out where the laptop is plugged in. you then assign vlan 2 to those ports , in your case ports 2/1-2 . If IOS switches then issue switchport access vlan 2 on the ports , if catos then it would be set vlan 2 2/1-2 .
