Hi All,

We have a SonicWall 3060 Firewall with Zone support (Port-based LAN
segmentation) and we like to connect a switch to this firewall. Zones on
the firewall allow filtering of database between subnets - and this is very
important for us.

We like to use one switch to handle all the subnets.

Are there any switches that support LAN segmentation by port? (i.e. Port 1
- 12 = 192.168.1.x, Ports 13 - 24 = 192.168.2.x?). Ideally we like to
segment the switch phyiscally (i.e. split a switch in 2, 3, etc?).

Unfortunately our firewall doesn't support VLANs... Can switches do VLAN
routing on their own?

Any suggestions on what switch to buy?

Thanks!
