I need to give Internet connectivity only to another area and I do not have access to the Firewall or one of the servers. Can I use a switch and set-up a VLAN so that I can give that other area Internet access? If so, what Switch would you suggest (very small budget) and how would I go about this? Can I run the switch off the current Hub and then get another WAP so I can have that other area access via wireless technology and still be on there own segment? Is this switch difficult to set-up?
