Connecting multiple clients to one router

Hello,

I was thinking about connecting multiple clients to one router. I'm planning to use a switch, connected to the router. Then use subinterfaces with vlans to connect the different clients. The problem is that because of the switch, I'm limited to 255 clients. Is there a way to be able to connect more clients?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Daniel

Daniel,

I'm a little confused as to what you want to do. From what you're saying, it sounds like you're going to have 255 subnets? What type of switch do you have? Is it L2 or L3? What's your end goal?

Hello,

Sorry, I did't explain all the things. I'm thinking about a L2 switch. The main goal is to allow some subnets communicate with others. Some kind of L3 VPN. I thought about MPLS, but there are not enough clients for this kind of solution. Now I'm thinking how much can this system grow.

Thanks for your observations.


Regards,

Daniel
