VLANs for my Wireless Network
i am looking to do the same here - not a clue on where to start!
I have AP's around the school connected to different switchs. I want to create a VLAn for these AP's; where do i start?
I have 1 procurve 2600
2 procurve 2800's
1 procurve 4200vl
around 4 d-link switchs capable of VLANs
Any pointers would be a great help
Cheers in advanced

Problem solved, thanks to Stuart. Our VLAN's on the switches were ok. It seems that wireless isolation and VLANs don't work together very well.
stariq, we use netgear switches with 3com core switches and have 2 VLANS (default 1 and wireless 2).
A few pointers for VLANs are:
Create a second VLAN on all switches
Make sure that any ports connected to AP's, wireless controllers are set to tag on the second vlan
Switches usually have an option to create trunk ports linking to other switches (or tag the ports linking switches)
Have a look at these posts aswell
It's also woth looking at the switch manufacturers website, they sometimes have examples of vlan setups.
Hope this gives you an idea of where to start
