I am thinking about seperation the switch into 2 VLANs, however there is only one ethernet port to connect between the switch and the router. So only 1 VLAN can have connection to the router (i.e, internet connection). What can I do to allow both VLANs to have internet connection? Please assist me
I'd be happy to help, but I have no idea what hardware you're running.
If you configure the switch to trunk all of its vlans over a single port, and configure the router (if Cisco) with sub-interfaces using "encapsulation isl" or "dot1q", each sub-interface would be a logical interface to each vlan.
If I remember correctly (I was only superficially involved) we had some problems when we wanted to do the exact same thing for our AAVID install at our office when we put in our IP PBX. When we attempted to configure the sub-interfaces on the ethernet interface, we had major issues with the data flow. We were forced to install a second interface to allow both voice and data to route via the 3640 we were using at the office.
I don't know that the issue has not been addressed, but this was as of 4 to 6 months ago.
