VLAN with more than one table

My products are working on ethernet level (no IP).
They send frames at 100base-T( use 97% of the bandwith full-duplex).
I have to do 2 VLANs.
My problem is:
- my devices have only one MACaddress (for example 200) but do have 2 network interfaces.
example : - in the VLAN1 , I have the address 200, and the VLAN2 the MACaddress 200 also.
I have tried the switch 2512 , but it seems to not support to have twice the same MACaddress, even if it is for 2 VLANs.
Could it work with an other HP switch?
Thank you
Eric
ps: the drawing will help you.

Re: VLAN with more than one table

hi bevillard
You can not do like that!
Because, *ONE* ethernet card has *ONLY ONE* MAC address, thus, even you put it in to any VLAN, the MAC will not change.

Re: VLAN with more than one table

Explenation how devices with multiple vlans should be connected to the 2500 series:

The reason has to do with a single MAC table for all Vlans. All newer devices of Procurve have a MAC table per Vlan. If you search for an equivalent for the 2500 than the 2600 is a good alternative.
