No internet access on VLANs with RV042G and SG300

I'm trying to set up a network for a small business which will have different offices, and so I want to separate them all by VLAN so that they cann't access each other's files. The problem is that I can't access the internet from any of the VLANs, including the default.

The RV042G router is connected to the internet through the WAN1 port and has a static IP address of I enables multiple subnets and added one for each of the VLANs (1 - admin, 10, 20, 30, 100 - guest). I also created static routes to the SG300 switch, which has an IP address of,, etc. The switch is in Layer 3 mode and is functioning as the DHCP server. I also have a wireless access point set up that broadcasts an SSID for each VLAN, however this is not the issue since no internet connection can be established wirelessly or with a wired connection.

I am fairly certain it has something to do with the data not being correctly routed through from the internet to the client, however I can't seem to find what is configured incorrectly. If anyone could offer some suggestions it would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need more info, I have attached some of the configuration screens for reference.



Hello It quite hard to visualise your setup and configuration -However looking at your posts it seems like your router is running in host mode and not router mode In the advanced routing section can you try enabling ip routing? res Paul

Hi Paul,Thanks for the

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the suggestion, but I changed it from Gateway to Router and this didn't fix the problem, still no internet access.

I have a cabel modem box that connects to the RV042G through WAN1, and then the RV042G connects to the SG300 through port 1 on the RV042G. On the RV042G, this port is set to VLAN1, while the port on the SG300 is set as a trunk port. The SG300 is then assigning IP addresses to the clients. It has 4 different VLANs created that go to different offices. Does this help you understand the setup any better?

 Hifirst from RV042G , are



first from RV042G , are you getting any routes from internet . Firstly check for reachability to internet from router.

<<On the RV042G, this port is set to VLAN1, while the port on the SG300 is set as a trunk port. >>

from router to switch this port should be in trunk rather than in vlan 1...
