    How To set up VLANs when using unmanageable switches ?

    A friend of mine
    has bought dozen of unmanageable switches
    and set them up in a LAN network.

    In the beginning no VLAN was required -
    now, the customer has expressed the need to segment the network ! -

    Any help on doing this (setting up VLANs) without
    having to replace switches ?

    Maybe from the router itself ? Or From a Software based solution ?

    Any Help would be much apreciated
    Thanks in advance.

    You cant do this. You need a managed switch. I would be exploring other options such as routing or even subnetting.
