Our Internet Service Provider , give us a cable modem that we need to connect to a switch , from this switch , one go to the TV SET TOP BOX and the other one is normal PC's for internet.
When I look in the TV MENU of the Set Top Box , the IP is in the range of 10.0.x.x /16
When I look in the PC they are in the range of 192.168.1.x /24 (I can only have 1 PC at the time)
This means that they use some VLANS , where the INTERNET in maybe in VLAN 1 and the STB in VLAN ?
Now I come to the question :
I have a CISCO 1841 ROUTER (2 Fast Ethernet)
The idea , F0/0 is from my ISP , F0/1 go to my CISCO 2960 SWITCH (TRUNK)
I would like to have from F0/0 to F0/1 a "direct connection" in a certain VLAN x
This is the first step IN F0/0 = OUT F0/1 (NO ROUTING ; NO FIREWALL ; NOTHING)
The next step , I would like to have a other VLAN that have DHCP ; ROUTING ; Etc
Both VLANS will come out in one trunk and I will filter them out in the CISCO 2960 SWITCH.
I know how to create VLANS ,NAT ,ROUTING TABLES , but I have no clue how to make a trunk out of my router.
Here below in a small drawing what I would like to archive :
> OUT F0/1 10.0.x.x in VLAN X
ISP 10.0.x.x /16 + 192.168.1.x/24 IN F0/0 >
> OUT F0/1 192.168.100.x in VLAN Y (NOTE THE IP RANGE 192.168.100.x)
Thank you in advance for your input
you probably still need to go with a packet capture to see vlan tags as a LAN switch allows or denies tagged frames depending on the fact the port is configured as a trunk and the vlan-ids are present or not in the vlan database.
Note: for the IPTV service each TV channel is a different multicast stream and the network may be configured to allow only one stream at a given time so you may not be able to connect two set top boxes and to see two different TV programs on them.
To be noted that if the network does not perform this control the risk is that you can use too much bandwidth on the IPTV part resulting in bad quality.
Hope to help
