Configuring 802.1Q VLANs on Vigor3200 and Planet Smart Switch
Posted by on 03 February 2012 05:00 PM
n this guide we will configure four IP subnets in the Vigor3200 and assign them to a VLAN. Since the Vigor3200 only has one LAN port we will need to configure an 802.1Q VLAN trunk between the Vigor3200 and the Planet GSW-2404SF switch. On the switch we will allocate ports for each VLAN. The diagram below shows the topology being used.
Planet Switch Settings
Step1: Enable VLANS
Go to “LAN >> VLAN Configuration”menu.
Note: Do not enable VLAN tag for VLAN0 and LAN1 at this stage or you will lose access to the router. We enable this VLAN after we get the switch going.
Step2: Configure LANS
Go to “LAN >> General Setup” configuration menu
Step3: Enable Remote Management
Go to “System Maintenance >> Management” configuration menu and enable “Allow management from the Internet” as shown in the diagram below. This is required to allow access to the router from one of the other VLANS. (This is due to a bug in firmware version 3.3.7)
Step 4: Enable Tagged VLAN for VLAN0 (LAN1)
Note: Carry out this step after the switch has been configured and you are able to access the router via LAN2, LAN3 or LAN4. Refer to the last section “Testing and Finalising Configuration”
Tick Enable for VLAN0 and assign VID 1.
Planet Switch Configuration
Step 1: Log into the Planet Switch
Planet switch default IP address is 192.168.0.100. Default password is “admin”
Once you have logged into the switch you can change the default IP address to match the IP subnet for LAN1. Here we have used the IP address 192.168.10.100.
Step 2: Configure VLAN Membership
Go to VLAN Membership configuration menu and create VLAN ID’s and port association.
Note: VLAN1 is enabled by default and all ports are associated with VLAN1
Note: Port 1 must be a member of all VLAN ID’s since this will be used as the 802.1Q VLAN Trunk (uplink) from the Vigor3200 router
Step 3: Configure VLAN Port Configuration
Go to VLAN Port configuration menu and assign VLAN ID’s for each port
Testing and Finalising Configuration
Before completing the configuration check that LANs 2, 3 & 4 can be accessed from the switch.
If above steps successful then carry out Step 4: Enable Tagged VLAN for VLAN0 (LAN1)
