Cisco 2960 Multi WAN to multi LAN subnets?

  1. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I'm starting a network project at a golf course country club in the town I live in. Here's what I have and what I'm trying to do:

    I have:

    >2 dedicated WAN connections from separate modems (2 physical ethernet cables). One for IP phones (voice), one for data.
    >a pfSense box with 3 NICs
    >A Cisco 2960 switch with VLAN capabilities
    >IP Phones
    >Wired Computers

    Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

    WAN1 (Phones, --------------> NIC1
    WAN2 (Data, -----------------> NIC2
    NIC3 = LAN (VLAN tags: Voice = 4 =, Data = 5 = ) -----> fa0/1 port on Please or Register to view links.

    On the Cisco switch, port fa0/1 is the trunk port. Let's say I plug in a phone into port fa0/2 which is an access port to VLAN4. I also plug a PC into fa0/3 which is an access port for VLAN5. Both VLANs go over the trunk. I want the phone to get a 192.168.1.# address and use the WAN1 connection since it's dedicated to voice. I want the PC to get a 192.168.2.# address and use the WAN2 connection since it's dedicated for data.

    Basically, I'm wanting to eliminate the need to setup 2 pfSense boxes and NAT (PAT) 2 WAN connections with both of them. I'd rather do it with one and do VLAN tagging over the trunk to the switch. In simpler terms, I want to run 2 instances of PAT I guess, if that's the correct wording.
  2. I think i may .,only you know how to set it up or config it in Cisco switch.,why dont you use Cisco Router.,?
