Hi All,

I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can solve this problem for me...

How is it possible to configure 2 VLANs to communicate with each other on the same switch? I have managed to create 2 VLANS and they both work (and can access the internet), but they can't communicate with each other.

VLAN1 has an IP range starting 10.4.160 and VLAN2 has an IP range starting 10.6.192.

Is it VLAN routing that I'm looking for? Are there any Netgear switch experts out there that can help me set this up? My switch is Netgear GSM7328FS.

Thanks in advance
Nick

To allow routing between VLANs on the same switch, you need a layer 3 switch, which you have. I've never configured one of those. The only Netgear switches I've configured are the web managed ones which are layer 2 only but have configured other layer 3 switches. Basically, you need to create a VLAN interface and assign an IP address to it. By default when the switch has multiple VLAN interfaces with IP addresses, it will route between them without needing to have any static route entries or the use of routing protocols. It is known as locally connected. With the connected clients on both subnets, you would make the default gateway the IP address of the switch on that respective subnet/VLAN.
