If you add a 3rd nic, it is another LAN called "opt1" in the system.  A VLAN
is more then one network on a given interface.  Your plane is good, but
either your terminology or your understanding is still faulty.  I just want
to be sure you are making a fully informed choice.

Hi Lee

I think my undestanding was rather faulty. But I understand that you need
VLAN capable Switch to do VLAN tagging. However, from some people's advices
I think I want to try installing 3rd NIC for the opt1 LAN interface. Then I
will connect all the groups that is not supposed to go to the internet on
the opt-1 NIC and control their access. Would that be a cheaper solution
than buying VLAN Capable Switch?
