Hi Everyone

I'm faced with a difficult problem here. I have my internal network hooked up on our lower floor and upper floor. We also have a secondary backup DSL line which is on the upper floor.

Now we want to setup wireless internet to our lower floor but the only we can do this is to run a cat5 cable through the ground.
I know there is another way to do it with our managed switches. Someone told me was called Virtual network or Virtual LAN something like that. You can configure one port from each switch to work with that "other network". So the downstairs switch will get the signal from that one port to use the backup DSL line.

It's something I'm not familiar with which is why I posted here to see if I'm going the right direction or if this is even possible!!
