Unanswered Question
Mar 3rd, 2010

Hey guys,

Hopefully this is a fun one ..

I have at home a cisco 881 which is up and running fine.

I want to hook up my dlink wireless router and have the wireless traffic as a seperate network.

Has anyone tried this??

I am having a hell of a time getting the two to talk to eachother.

I setup a vlan interface on my 881 vlan101 with the ip address

and on the dlink I configured it as "static" and gave it an address of

the lan IP scheme is

I put in a routing statement that says ip route I've also tried vlan101

I can't even ping the interface on the dlink (yes I've enabled ping on the wan interface)

if anyone has done this before and advice would be helpful

I have this problem too.

Does your DLink talk 802.1q trunking?

What port did you connect the DLink AP to?  the WAN port or a switch port?

I plugged it into switchport fast 3

I don't know how to tell if the dlink speaks dot1q

I've put the fas 3 prt as a trunk

How about configuring your VLAN 101 with a secondary IP address?

  ip add
