Do I need any specific router features to use VLANs on an SF200-24?

Hi.  I'm just starting to learn about some of the managed switch features/concepts.  We're considering purchasing an SF200-24 switch as we have the need for VLAN support.  Currently we are using a very old router (SonicWall TZ-170).  Will we need any specific router features in order to configure/use the VLANs on the SF200-24 properly?

Thanks!

Hello,I couldn't find a lot

Hello,

I couldn't find a lot of detailed information about the TZ-170, but the only router feature you really need is the ability to create VLANs.  This standard is usually listed as 802.1Q.  This usually also includes the ability to create a trunk port that can carry more than one VLAN.  Cisco calls this trunking, some companies call it tagging, I believe with the Sonicwall you would need to create a subinterface for each VLAN on the connection to the switch, but I am no Sonicwall expert.

Hope that helps,
