    Yasir, I saw this article as I browsed some answers on how to combine cisco vlan system (router and switches) with non-cisco switches that have vlan capability (reportec switch). Should they be working together given that they have 802.1q capability? I also have some IP PBX systems, how can I efficiently place the IP phones in an existing vlan (say vlan alpha) so that data and voice (from the SIP server and IP phones) would not cause troubles for users in that exixting vlan? I'm thinking of this because the network layout is already existing for vlan alpha. Thanks and best regards. June
