I have a question in regards to the 802.1Q intervlan feature on the WRVS4400N. My goal is to setup a test network with atleast 10 departmental VLAN(s). By reading the WRVS4400N's data sheet I know that it supports up to 4 VLAN(s). I decided to purchase a Linksys SRW224G4 since it can create more than 4 VLAN(s).
With my previous Cisco experience I used to configure VLAN(s) on a Catalyst 2940 and trunk them to a Cisco 2501 series router by configuring trunk ports on the Catalyst and sub interfaces with 802.1q tagging on the routers.
I was wondering if I could trunk 10 VLAN(s) from my SRW224G4 to my WRVS4400N?
This is what I have tried to do so far
On the SRW224G4 I configured 10 VLAN(s) and set port G1 as a trunk port to port 1 on my WRVS4400N.
On my WRVS4400N I configured port 1 as a trunk port that accepts all frames.
When I look at the LAN settings on my WRVS4400N it doesn't give me the option to configure gateways for my VLAN(s). Does this router only support 4 VLAN(s)? if it does is there another router I can look into that has the ability to support more than 4?
I purchased the Linksys/Cisco small business series thinking that it can provide me with the basics to create a small network. I never thought the WRVS4400N would have a 4 VLAN limitation even when I trunk VLAN(s) from a switch.
Thanks for the input guys
