If in a single L2 Switch, IPs of the same range can communicate - then what's the need of creating a VLAN for different IP range? Can two switches (having VLAN defined in each) communicate without the help of Layer-3 device? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No need to create a separate VLAN.

Yes, they can communicate without a layer3 device if the devices are on the same subnet(s).
