CCNA Lab Question

HI all ...

I am doing some playing around with my CCNA LAB. I have a Question About Inter-VLan ROuting...


I want to Establish Communication Between the 2 Sites but Prevent Broadcasts and unnecessary traffic across the WAN link. etc...

The links between the ROuters and the Switches are Trunk Links...

Site A has a Scope of /22

Site B has a Scope of /20

So it the Solution as simple as

1. Make a Vlan (5) Called routing with an ip of lets say /29. Make the 2 Switch access ports of that vlan .OR Trunk links with Allow Vlan (5) across trunks and deny all others...

2. Static routes on Routes on the routers /22 vice-versa ?

Any Ideas which direction i should take ? I am still at very early stages of my CCNA so sorry for my stupid question...


Hello. I have yet to come


I have yet to come across this type of design after so long in the field.

Switches have been created for LAN connectivity and routers for WAN.

I believe you should probably connect the routers together and the switches face tge LAN side.

All other design stays the same.
