All - I have a real simple question. We're in the process of converting the network to net 10 and I still have some devices in the old network:
Here's the scenario:
I have a router with the ethernet ip address of
10.1.1.1 255.255.254.0 primary
188.8.131.52 255.255.255.128 secondary
The switch address is
All of my users are addressed via dhcp in the the 10.1.2.1 portion of the aforementioned ethernet segment (10.1.1.1 255.255.254.0). Would the address of the switch require all users to talk to the router when talking to the net 10 devices? I am in the process of re-addressing the switches, but wanted to find out the current ramifications.
Devices on the 10.1.1.1/23 network can talk to eachother without going through the router, so long as the devices have the subnet mask correctly configured. Traffic between the 184.108.40.206/25 and the 10.1.1.1/23 networks will go via the router.
The switch address is only used for management, and does not affect the layer 2 switching it performs.

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
