Simple Vlan Configuration

Unanswered Question
Aug 27th, 2009

I have a 2960 that is connected to a NetGear router for cable modem access and to our corp network. The netgear gives out IP addresses for public access. I have a WAP with two SSIDs. One ID is PUBLIC and tagged as VLAN 8. The other is PRIVATE and untagged.

I have updated my diagram to show what I need to happen. Based on what SSID a user attaches to with there laptop, they have access to the corporate lan or public internet access. I cannot get the ports on the switch to allow this to happen. What needs to be set to get it to work via VLANs. No routing between VLANs is needed.

I have this problem too.

Hello Ronald,

the port between the C2960 and the access point has to be a trunk port carrying vlan 8 and another vlan x

that vlan has to be the native vlan on the port

int type x/y

desc to access point


switchport trunk enc dot1q

switchport trunk native vlan x

switchport trunk allowed vlan 8,x

switchport mode trunk

the access point has to associate

SSD1 to vlan 8

SSD2 to vlan x

Hope to help

I can get an address from the netgear but I cannot get an address from the corp network DHCP.

I have the port that the corp DHCP server is on is a trunk port. That is the only setting.
