I've got a Cisco Catalyst 3500 switch. I have an Access Point in port 13 which in on VLAN 20. That AP pulls its IP from our Gateway, and that part is working fine. The AP itself also has a VLAN setup on it because I want the users to pull from a differnt scope of IPs. I cannot get the users to get an IP address from the AP. Port 13 is setup for VLAN Access, how can I set it up for trunking the VLAN info from the AP. I was able to get this working with ZyXEL switches, just not with Cisco. Any help would be great

Hi, you have to allow 802.1q trunk on the port. If you put the port as "access port", only the native vlan (none tagged) will be allowed.

Here is the config you can try:

interface f0/13

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport trunk native vlan 20

switchport mode trunk
