My situation: I have 2 switches - SRW224G4 and SRW248G4. One of them is located on 1st floor, one of them is on the 2nd floor. Both are a part of the same network.
I need to connect a device (a wireless access point) to 1 port on the switch on 1st floor. Also, I need to connect a router to the switch on 2nd floor. Is it possible to isolate the two ports on each switch so that they (both the wireless AP and the router) act as if they were connected by a simple cable? Basically, I want the switches to act almost like simple patchpanels.
I have tried to use VLAN etc., but without any success. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
