I'm new to cisco switches and I'm having trouble setting up vlans. Here's my situation:
I have a linksys router doing dhcp connected to the Catalyst 3550 switch. I reset the switch and was able to complete the initial configuration.
My router ip is 192.168.1.1/24 (/24 = Subnet: 255.255.255.0), and I set Vlan1 to 192.168.1.2/24. Now I was able to create Vlan2 and set its ip to 10.1.2.1/24 and "bind" it to FastEthernet0/2. I also ran a static route to 192.168.1.1 and used the ip helper-address 192.168.1.1.
Here's where my problem lies, I then connected a computer to FastEthernet0/2 but the computer does not get an ip from the dhcp.
I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong, so if someone can point it out or better yet have a step by step vlan configuration guide from the beginning I would be grateful. I'm also aware of the fact that the 3550 can do the dhcp itself, but unsure of how to set that up.
Thanks in advance.
