That is truely fascinating. I am currently studying for CCNA ironically. This part of Redwarrior's comment I really find interesing
"You can create virtual interfaces on that router for each of the networks you've given to those vlans and it will route traffic to them the same as if you had separate physical networks attached to it"
I sort of knew you could do this, but I thought you could do it with subinterfaces on a router without using vlans. Apparently Cisco IOS doesnt do this. I tried it in a simulator and got an error trying to assign an IP to a subinterface of a router without enabling 802.1Q first. But if I understand correctly, when using Vlans, you could create as many subnets as you want, and only really need one router and one switch. That's amazing, the traffic goes from a PC into a switch, then into a router, then back into the same switch from which it came, only now its on a different subnet?!

That's crazy about the binding. I've been trying to read up on WAN's as well. ATM, Frame Relay, Sonet, MLPS, etc. That seems to be the hardest to figure out in terms of cabling, multiplexing, equipment used and topologies. Its hard to really understand when you've never seen it in real life. All the material I've read will say such in such is a packet switched, multiplexed technology, and so on. But none of it says: A typical implementation would be Router > serial cable> connector type > etc. I need to find material that will start you from the most basic WAN connections.

Yeah I like the challenging aspects of the field. It gets me more determined to learn, and make more $!!! Oh, and I would love to pick your brain.
