    VLAN Setup

    Ok, so I need to seperate 3 connections on my network and have them off my network. The problem I am coming across is that I understand the basic concepts of VLAN but have never actually set one up nor used one in practice. SO here is the setup.

    I have 2 managed switches. The connections connect to switch a which in turn connects to switch b and then is connected to my firewall.

    I figured I could just set the port on switch a as a vlan but how do I get it to look at switch 2 and then to the firewall hookup. My firewall has 4 ports and can be setup that the internet connection can be shared by all but the ports are segregated so that they cannot see each other unless you set them up that way. I have it that port 1 is everyone on my network and port 3 is its own network scheme with completely different IP octets.

    So switch a has the three connections and port 1 sees only those connections. When i set it up in a vlan they lost internet access so I am assuming i need to setup the vlan in on port 1 but have no idea how to set the connection out as there are 4 connections total.

    How do I setup the outgoing port so understand the VLAN and then on switch b make sure that sees the incoming vlan setup and direct it to port 22 which is the direct connection to the segregated firewall.

    Might be handy to tell us the switches and firewall. The basics is that the to switches are connected on a trunked port this mean that traffic is tag on this link so ends up on the right vlan the other end. You then put an access port in untagged in to the vlan that you want. Why are you creating these 3 vlans?

    Do you have admin rights to the internet gateway router you talk about?

    Sorry I didn't clarify. Switches are TP-Link L2 Managed switches and the firewall is a Zywall 20W. I never said anything about 3 vlans, so not sure where that came from. My thought process was that I set up a port Vlan on siwtch a and have it tagged and then on Switch B put the port which connects to my firewall in the same Vlan. That would be a total of 2 vlans, 1 on each switch.
