    Need to learn about VLANs

    Hi Everyone,

    I am interested in developing an understanding of VLANs. At my workplace I am running out of I.P. addresses and it has been proposed that the addition of one or more VLANs could alleviate the addressing issue. Ideally I would like to separate out client computers (desktops using Ethernet connections), printers, and Wi-Fi devices (laptops & smartphones primarily) onto separate VLANs.

    I am particularly interested in how to communicate between the VLANs once they are setup. For example all client computers need to be able to access printers even though they will be on a separate VLAN.

    Any links to tutorials, good books, or other resources will be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    Davo

    A VLAN is a group of devices on one or more LANs that are configured to communicate as if they were attached to the same wire, when in fact they are located on a number of different LAN segments. Because VLANs are based on logical instead of physical connections, they are extremely flexible.
