home network frustration

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 172.254.254.1 255.255.255.0

and on the dlink I configured it as "static" and gave it an address of 172.254.254.2 255.255.255.0

the lan IP scheme is 172.255.255.0 255.255.255.0

I put in a routing statement that says ip route 172.255.255.0 255.255.255.0 172.254.254.2 I've also tried vlan101

I can't even ping the 172.254.254.2 interface on the dlink (yes I've enabled ping on the wan interface)

if anyone has done this before and advice would be helpful

Does your DLink talk 802.1q trunking?

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

Re: home network frustration

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?

Sorry I don't quite understand what that will get me

int vlan 101
  ip add 172.254.254.1 255.255.255.0
  ip add 172.254.254.2 255.255.255.0 secondary
