we would like to implement vlan's on one of our wan's. We have a 2610 and 3550-48's. My question is: Is it better to set up the routing on the router or the switches? Do I still need ip routing on the switches if I set it up on the router?
Vlan is a LAN concept, so not sure what you meant by implementing VLAN on WAN.
You can enable routing on the 3550 for inter-vlan traffic and any other traffic can be handle by the 2610. You will need default route for all unknown on 3550 to point to 2610 and on 2610 a static route to all the vlans in 3550.
For example, you have vlan 1, 2 and 3 on 3550. The 2610 is connected to 3550 via vlan 1 and the WAN or Internet.
interface vlan 1
ip address 188.8.131.52/24
interface vlan 2
ip address 184.108.40.206/24
interface vlan 3
ip address 220.127.116.11/24
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 18.104.22.168
ip address 22.214.171.124/24
ip route 126.96.36.199 mask 188.8.131.52
ip route 184.108.40.206 mask 220.127.116.11
above is just a simple example where the 3550 is doing the inter-vlan routing and the 2610 doing the routing for the rest of the traffic. Hope it helps.
