Vlan setup with L2 switch and Cisco 2620 router

By Acer1986 ·
Hi, I'm quite new to this forum and new to Vlans.

I have been reading a lot of articles and questions regarding Vlans on this site, but I'm still not sure about it.

Basically, I have got a Netgear GSM 7224 Switch which supports 802.1Q Trunking? and a Cisco 2620 Router. Which I believe supports the same protocols.

What I want to do in my testlab; to go live when its ready, is to have at least 3 seperate Vlans and just ONE DHCP, DNS Server. (Windows Server 2000, possibly 2003?)
My question: Have I got the right Hardware to do it, what else do I need?
Thanks in advance for all your help.

Right Hardware

It seems you do have the correct hardware, You've got a 2620 that you can create your sub-interfaces on for each VLAN using dot1q, and you've got a switch that supports 802.1q. Life should be good.

Another lab option

I had difficulty learning and getting VLANs to work until I used two switches, instead of trying to learn the different Router IOS and the Switch IOS commands and syntax at the same time. Once the switches were talking and trunking to each other, adding a router was much easier. I used two identical Catalyst 2950s.
