Greetings.


Would like to ask if anyone could give me a hint how to make sure, that all defined VLANs on my SLM224P are trunked to the 2nd unit.


I tried so many things, but I am unable to use any VLAN other than VLAN1 on the remote switch.

In my other non linksys products, you simply define a port as trunk and voila, done.


( 224p) ---------------(224p)

         G1                    G1


VLANs: 1, 100, 200, 201


Many, many thanks for a hint.

I have a main Cisco 3550 switch in one building. And in the two other buildings I have two SML224P switches.

IT WORKS GREAT!!!

It took me sometime, but I got it to work. And there's very little info out there on the net. So here's what I came up with:


VLAN1 - 192.168.1.0/24

VLAN2 - 192.168.2.0/24

VLAN11 - 192.168.11.0/24




Cisco SLM224P VLAN TRUNKING

You need to set the port for trunk or access. As an example, I used g1 and g2 for the trunk ports.

VLAN Setup

In the left column click "VLAN Management".

Create VLAN
- Create your VLANs
- Create the VLAN ID that is in your network.
- Such as "2" and "11".
- Click Save Settings. The settings are modified, and the device is  updated.

Port Settings
- Set the port you want to Trunk the VLAN to. By default, all ports are set to  VLAN1.
- Click VLAN Management > Port Setting.
- Set the "Acceptable Frame Type" to "All".
- Set the "PVID" to the VLAN ID number.
- Such as, to make VLAN2 on port 9, 10, 21 and 22, under the PVID type the  number 2.
- And to make VLAN11 on port 11, 12, 23 and 24, under the PVID type the number  11.
- Click Save Settings. The settings are modified, and the device is  updated.

Port to VLAN
- Go to the port you want to Trunk the VLAN to.
- Click VLAN Management > Port to VLAN.
- Select the VLAN and TAG "Tagged" the VLAN ports and the TRUNK ports
- Such as, Select VLAN. Click VLAN2, then tagged ports 9, 10, 21 and 22. Also tagged the g1 and g2 trunk ports.
- And then Select VLAN. Click VLAN11, then tagged ports 11, 12, 23 and 24. Also tagged the g1 and g2 trunk ports.
- Click Save Settings. The settings are modified, and the device is  updated.


Here's an example:
The way I have my switch configured is this...


In the VLAN Management - Port Settings tab:
SLM Port 9 is PVID 2 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 10 is PVID 2 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 21 is PVID 2 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 22 is PVID 2 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 11 is PVID 11 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 12 is PVID 11 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 23 is PVID 11 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
SLM Port 24 is PVID 11 with Ingress Filtering enabled.
All other SLM ports are PVID 1 with Ingress Filtering ENabled.
In the VLAN Management - Port to VLAN tab:
VLAN 1 shows that all ports are untagged, except for ports 9, 10, 11, 12,  21, 22, 23, 24 which are excluded.  Everything is grayed out so no changes  can be made here.
VLAN 2 ports 9, 10, 21, 22 are tagged. However, g1 and g2 are also tagged because these are going to be my trunk ports. All other ports are excluded.
VLAN 11 ports 11, 12, 23, 24 are tagged. Again, g1 and g2 are also tagged because these are going to be my trunk ports. All other ports are excluded.
In the VLAN Management - VLAN to Port tab:
All ports show as 1U, EXCEPT for ports e9, e10, e11, e12, e21, e22, e23,  e24, which show as their VLAN number.
Ports e9, e10, e21, and e22 will show as 2T.
Ports e11, e12, e22, and e24 will show as 11T.
The trunk ports g1 and g2 will show as 1U.

And as you can guess ports 1-8, and 13-20 are VLAN1, the native VLAN.
Spanning Tree enabled, Port Fast disabled.


I pretty much did not touch or change any other settings.

I'm able to ping across the network. I can ping all subnets.

IT WORKS GREAT!!!

I hope this helps.
