We now need to assign an interface IP address to this vlan now, we need this if we want to route traffic to this VLAN such as DHCP. To do so select VLAN interface and create. Enter the VLAN that we have just created as the ID, then specify the IP address that we will give this VLAN, I normally start at 1, specify the subnet and click apply.

    I’ve followed your steps but the PC on VLAN 2 still does not get an IP Address. Is there more configuration to be done that is not mentioned here? How does the pc on VLAN2 communicate to the DHCP server to get an address and also how would this PC be able to get to the internet since the gateway is on a different subnet? Any help would be appreciated.

      Hello there, search the site for DHCP relay. You need to set-up one up so that your DHCP server can assign addresses correctly. With regards to how would it get to the internet, you can create a static route from the gateway the PC uses to your firewall etc.
