When I try and configure the WAP371 to use my management VLAN, I lose control of the WAP. I am connecting it to my 3750-X stack, and I have the port it is connected to configured as an 802.1Q trunk, and the 3750-X shows the port up as an 802.1Q trunk. I have configured VLAN 501 as the management VLAN and when I configure the management VLAN on the WAP371 to use VLAN 501, and I set an appropriate static IP for this VLAN, and an appropriate default gateway, I can no longer communicate with the WAP371. I do know it is properly using VLAN tags, as the other SSIDs are communicating with hosts on the respective VLANs associated with each SSID. I have tried leaving the untagged VLAN support on, I have turned it off. I am out of ideas on what else to try. If anyone else has successfully configured the WAP371 to use a tagged VLAN I would love to hear about what was needed.
I have done some more testing. If I use a single digit VLAN TAG for the management VLAN everything works as expected. If I use a 3 digit VLAN TAG (101 or 501 tested) I cannot ping or connect to the WAP 371 regardless of whether my laptop is going through my firewall / router (pfsense) or if I am directly connected to the 101 / 501 VLANs with my laptop.
