Does TP-Link T2600G-28TS support InterVlan Comms/Routing without dedicated router

Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: Not sure

Hi Everyone,

 

I did a quick search through the community forum but coudln't find a definitive answer.

The TP-Link JetStream TL-SG3424 (T2600G-28TS) has recently gone on sale in my local area and I would like to get my hands on one (around ZAR3000/$197).

(Don't require PoE) 

 

I'm not familiar with the TP-Link switches so just want to find out whether the switch supports InterVlan Comms/Routing (on the same switch) without the use of a dedicated router?

Need to know whether to factor in the price of an additional router.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dear @Hilko,

 

Please kindly note that the T2600G-28TS and the TL-SG3424 are different models. T2600G-28TS is an upgrade version to the TL-SG3424, which is more powerful and has more advanced functions like L3 routing feature, Static Routing function, DHCP Server, etc.

 

For your inquiry, it's hard to answer with a simple YES or NO. It depends on your actual purpose of using the switch. If you need a router to work as the network gateway, then choose a router for use. If you don't need a router in the network but a switch with L3 routing feature could work for you, then the T2600G-28TS can be your choice.

 

You may check the specification of the switch from the official website and choose the switch that best suits your network requirements.

Hope the information above is helpful.

@Fae Thank you very much for the detailed response Fae. I really do appreciate it.

Wasn't aware of the updated hardware. Really useful information (and thank you for sharing the specs page).

 

My network will only consists of 1 (one) switch with a number of VLAN's (eg, {Port1 assigned to VLAN1 = Network Storage}, {Ports 2 to 5 assigned to VLAN2 = Users}).

I just want the users to be able to access storage from VLAN1.

 

From your reply (if I understand correctly), it seems that interVLAN routing on a single switch will be possible (with this switch without using a separate router).

I'm trying to avoid purchasing a separate router until I buy an additional switch. Limited budget :-p

The T2600G-28TS switch supports Layer 3 interface (interVLAN routing), which could meet the requirement that the devices in one VLAN can communicate with the devices in another VLAN. But the TL-SG3424 doesn't support it.
