I have a new SRW208G switch and what I want to do seems very simple but so far I am unable to figure out how to do it.
- DSL Modem/Router connected to g1 (It could be connected to one of the "e" ports if more appropriate). DSL Modem/Router is also the DHCP server.
- I want devices connected to ports e1-e7 to be able to connect to each other and to g1.
- I want port e8 to be able to communicate ONLY with the DSL router on g1.
Simply stated, I want to create an isolated "guest" port so that a device connected to this port can communicate only with the DSL router and not with any other devices on the LAN.
It seems that PVE should be a simple way to do this but so far everything I've tried results in no communication on e8.
Can someone please provide detailed steps for this seemingly simple configuration?
You are right, it varies on each model whether or not the ports are shared. i have a SRW2008MP and these are shared.
On your model, it appears you have two dedicated uplinks ... the fiber port is a shared one with the copper one. Sorry for being confusing in my posting.
Have a great night,
I think you pretty much got it.
Using vlans and private vlan edge (PVE) features, you have segregated your network and kept things separated... cool stuff and good work!
Ports 7-8 are shared with G1 and G2. It is an either or ...
Two vlans are fine, can the DSL modem route to both? You need reachability if using multiple vlans ... vlans can segregate traffic just fine. On the modem you can make sure you do not route between vlans.
If using PVE, this would work too and you would keep all the ports on the same vlan.
Make sure the PVE is pointing to the uplink just fine. You might chose to run a sniffer as part of your testing to make sure there are no loops with the dsl modem and or your configs are tight.
Plug the modem into any port, no worries.
Do please let me know how you make out. HTH,
