Hi, I've currently got 2 x Netgear GS108T 'smart' switches at opposite ends of the house linked together via CAT5e. Currently I've got an ADSL modem/router connected to the first switch via Powerline adaptors. However, due to a broadband upgrade this will soon be changed and I will have a separate modem and router. Which is where my problems start. I can't physically put the two in the same location. I can't move the modem, so it will still be connected via the Powerline adaptors to where the first switch is located. Now, if I could locate the router here its fairly easy - into the router WAN port then from a LAN port into the switch and so on. Unfortunately though I really don't want (aesthetics this time) the router at that location either - I want it connected to the second switch if at all possible. I understand the GS108T's are capable of running VLANs but not sure if they offer a solution. I'm wondering if a VLAN can be set up so basically the modem and the router's WAN port can talk to each other but are isolated from the rest of the network? Hope I'm making some sense explaining what I'm thinking! ps In case you think I've missed the obvious - I can't move the Powerline adaptors either as speed is atrocious in the location of the second switch!
