So, as you can see above, I have two subnets coming from the same router which supports multiple DHCP server (I am not doing vLAN on the router). I want to divide ports 1-12 in vLAN ID 100 with subnet 192.168.5.0/24 to feed all the 12 ports and ports 13-24 in vLAN ID 200 with subnet 192.168.2.0/24 to all those ports.
Despite the trouble of making above diagram, I don't want you to think I am looking for something complex. Just basic simple vLAN and dividing the switch into two switches basically; Port 1-12 and 13-24.
I would also be happy if someone can suggest how I can include the G1, G2, G3, and G4 as part of the vLAN as well so that the whole top row of the ports on the Cisco switch can be dedicated to vLAN 100 and the bottom to vLAN 200.
Since I am not very verse with Cisco I use the Web Interface. I took the switch out of the box and set it to Standalone mode (from the previous stack mode) and connected my router to one of the G(x) ports but it did not work until I connected the router to one of the 1-24 ports. That is another issue I am facing.
What are the exact steps through the Web Admin Interface to make this division to work (the creation of vLAN)? I created vLAN in Properties > vLAN management but when I tried to add ports to it I got "illegale port mode...."
Unfortunately, the guides do not have a streamlined guide for this. Can someone please post how this is done?
I definitly prefer the Web Interface over the Console as this switch is co-located and it's hard to have physical access to it everytime a change is required. But web access is easily available.
***Bonus question: Currently I have setup the switch to pickup a static IP through one of the subnets. That is how I access the managed switch. Once vLAN is setup, how would I be able to get to the router Admin Interface?
Re: How to set simple vLAN on SFE2000 - I get illegale port
Sounds to me that you would need to create the vlans/ go to vlan port mode and set the port your wanting to be setup for vlan 100 and go to vlan to port and make it an untagged member of vlan 100 and repeat the process for vlan 200. This will segment the ports with vlans. The gig ports are able to be used by default. You might have to telnet into the switch and go to system mode and put it in standalone mode and not stacking mode. This will enable all ports.
