question on native vlan for a particular switchport

I have an access point that currently runs over vlan 1, 150, and 151. I want to change the native vlan from 1 to 149. I can do this in the ap, but my question is this:

Let's say that my switchport is g3/0/5. On switchport g3/0/5, the config looks like:

int g3/0/5

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allowed vlan add 1,150,151

If I want to change my default native, I would want to do:

int g3/0/5

switchport trunk native vlan 149

Will this affect any trunks between switches that are still using vlan 1 as their native vlan? In other words, if on the same switch that the ap is connected to, I also have another port that connects to another switch, the default vlan is 1 for that port. How does the switch handle a native vlan 149 on a port that has to traverse vlan 1 to get to another switch? I'm assuming that it would just cross the switches with no problems as long as the vlan is added to the trunk.

Thanks,

John

The native vlan as you know is the vlan that hs no tag attached to frames on a trunk. So it is only locally significant to both ends of a specific trunk ie.

SW1 -> trunk1 -> SW2 -> trunk2 -> SW3

trunk1 and trunk2 do not need to have the same native vlan and there would be no problem if each trunk had a different native vlan. Obviously both ends of the same trunk should agree on the native vlan.

Jon,

What I'll end up having is something like this: (native vlan is in ())

AP(149)->switch 1 port(149) -> sw 1 port uplink (1) -> sw2 port uplink(1)

The AP shouldn't have any problems getting to switch 2? (After I write it out like this, it seems that it wouldn't have any problems.) I think things should be okay.

Thanks,

John

AP (149) -> int gi0/1 (149) SW1 int gi0/2 (1) -> int gi0/1 (1) SW2

If that is what you typed out then you will be fine. Sorry but just needed to clarify switch interfaces.
