I have a question in regards to the 802.1Q intervlan feature on the WRVS4400N. My goal is to setup a test network with atleast 10 departmental VLAN(s). By reading the WRVS4400N's data sheet I know that it supports up to 4 VLAN(s). I decided to purchase a Linksys SRW224G4 since it can create more than 4 VLAN(s).
With my previous Cisco experience I used to configure VLAN(s) on a Catalyst 2940 and trunk them to a Cisco 2501 series router by configuring trunk ports on the Catalyst and sub interfaces with 802.1q tagging on the routers.
I was wondering if I could trunk 10 VLAN(s) from my SRW224G4 to my WRVS4400N?
This is what I have tried to do so far
On the SRW224G4 I configured 10 VLAN(s) and set port G1 as a trunk port to port 1 on my WRVS4400N.
On my WRVS4400N I configured port 1 as a trunk port that accepts all frames.
When I look at the LAN settings on my WRVS4400N it doesn't give me the option to configure gateways for my VLAN(s). Does this router only support 4 VLAN(s)? if it does is there another router I can look into that has the ability to support more than 4?
I purchased the Linksys/Cisco small business series thinking that it can provide me with the basics to create a small network. I never thought the WRVS4400N would have a 4 VLAN limitation even when I trunk VLAN(s) from a switch.
The WRVS4400N can only support 4 VLAN's, but it does support 802.1q therefore if it's connected to the switch it can pass all the VLAN's configured on the switch, but on that case the router can only pass DHCP for the 4 VLANs.
I believe the answer to your question is under the dhcp tab on the router, once you have vlans created there will be a drop down box for the vlans. Click the drop down box and it will allow you to put the address and range of ip addresses you want to be leased out.
