Cisco WS-C3750G-24S-E

Unanswered Question

I am new to all this so please bear with me.

I have a WS-C3750G-24S-E switch and am using it to setup port based VLANs.

I want to connect seperate switches to each VLAN port so that I can put several PCs connected to the local switch then connect the local switch to the VLAN port on the C3750

I have tried this with a layer 2 netgear switch but this does not work.

My question is what switch do I need for this scenario? We cannot afford to spend lots of money on this and I assumed any layer 2 switch would work.

There is no reason that should not work if set up correctly . On the 3750 you would create the layer 2 vlan and then the corresponding layer 3 SVI . Assign the ports that you want to connect to the other switches into the vlans you want on the other switches assuming that it is just a basic unmanaged switch would then be in that vlan . Example below.This will put a port to a switch into vlan 3 and would be a routable vlan . You would then do the same for the other vlans you want to create.


conf t

vtp mode transparent

vlan 3



int vlan 3

ip address

no shut


conf t

int g1/0/1

description port to unmanaged netgear switch


switchport mode access

switchport access vlan 3
