VLAN Cisco SF 302-08P


I have purchased a Cisco SF 302-08P 8-port 10/100 PoE Managed Switch with the intention of creating VLAN's for my home network. The idea behind this set up is having 1 network for gaming and the other for work.

I am thinking on having 2 separate networks  Gaming Network  Work Network

On the gaming network I need to open port 777 and on the work network restrict all ports except 80,443.

My set up would be

Internet - Router (R1) - Cisco Switch - 2 wireless routers(R2,R3) connected to the switch ( one for gaming(R2) and other for work (R3))

My idea is on Router R1 - open all ports

Router R2 - Open port 777,80,443 restrict all other ports

Router R3-  restrict all ports except 80,443.

I would like to know if this setup works and can anyone please provide VLAN procedure to accomplish this

HI Maakr,

First you want to enable the Switch to Layer3 mode as explained below:

Upgrade the firmware to the below link to download the firmware.

Configure the switch with below commands to change form Layer 2 to 3

The set system mode Privileged EXEC mode command puts the device into

switch mode (Layer 2 mode) or router mode (Layer 3 mode).


set system mode {router | switch}


• router—Specifies that the device functions as a switch-router.

• switch—Specifies that the device functions as a switch.

Default Configuration

The default configuration is switch mode (Layer 2).

Command Mode

Privileged EXEC mode

User Guidelines

After executing the command, the Startup Configuration file is deleted and the

device is rebooted. It is highly recommended to back up the Startup Configuration

file before executing this command.


The following example configures the device to function as a switch-router (Layer

3), with QoS and Policy based VLANs.

switchxxxxxx# set system mode router

After this

Kindly check the Menu--->IP configuration--->IPV4 interface---->you add the SVI interfaces for multi vlans.
