VLAN Routing and Trunking

By brado ·
I have managed a flat class C neetwork for several years. Due to our growth I am now looking into segmenting our LAN using VLANs. I understand the basic principle behind a VLAN but I am having a hard time visualizing the trunking and routing features required for proper operation. I have three Dell PowerConnect 62xx switches. The one in the server room has 10GB links to the other two units. How do I go about creating VLANs, trunks and routing in this situation? I have not finalized my VLAN structure yet but one area I am looking at is using Cisco Wireless APs to create a VLAN for guest internet access. I need to know how to configure the switches to trunk this traffic and how to setup the routig so they can get to the internet and possibly one other public VLAN only. Any help is greatly appreciated.
