I asked this question a few weeks ago: Moving to vlans from a basic network
I think the advice the answerer gave was right but I think I want to move forward with segregating my network and trying to make it more efficent.
I basically have 2 routers. One on the outer network is a "Public Lan" that we allow wifi connections to. I also have an internal "Private Lan".
We have 2 internet connections and 2 seperate routers that load balance.
I want to move to a vlan to simplify my network and hopefully speed it up.
The outer Peplink router is gigabit and handles my 150mb connection without an issue and the inner router is also a peplink but only does 100mb and a fiber connection we use for voip.
Am I correct in thinking that I can use one vlan aware switch out of my router and use that to send my vlans to the dumb switches in each area?
What about this diagram? Is it representative of a setup like this?
Or am I over thinking this? I really think I want to go to one router and just make sure AP users can not reach the private network. That way I can take full advantage of my 150MB connection while still keeping everything simple. I would like to have my phones, my office computers, my engineering gear and my ap users all on seperate subnets just for organization sake.
