    Just being layer 3 doesn't always mean your switch can route. many switches that are layer 3 support VLAN's but that is their extent. It depends on what switch you have. If you can give us some details as to model #, age...etc then we can provide you with more information.

    Thats not accurate - some MULTI-LAYER switches dont do routing, Layer 3 switches DO routing, thus the term Layer 3 All Layer 3 Switches = Multilayer Switches, but not all MLS are Layer 3...
