Need help with a basic Vlan!

Hi there.

Ive been asked to setup a vlan on each network ie.

Phoenix Chicago and Bangor but only the wireless elements of the network

I have setup a trunk on the 802.1q as it says on each cable going from the switch ot the wireless router.

I tried to assing a vlan to each wireless workstation for example on Phoenix network, but only the data for one client was allowed to be pinged. It was only when i tried to trunk it that it worked.


I followed dansvideo on youtube to do this but i think i need to add more to get this to work, im not sure.

My network is subnetted on a class b and everything pings correctly.

What am i doing wrong or what do i need to do to make the wireless clients on phoenix to be part of a vlan? Do i need to do routher encapsulation?

Please help as i have uploaded my pkt.file and would be grateful if somebody who knows what there doing can take alook at it please.

Thanks

Paul,

You have to trunk the port that the wireless device is connected to. The diagram that you posted shows a 2600 series router and not a L3 switch. In order to have vlans work, you have to have something to route for them - either a router or L3 switch. If you have vlans 10 and 20 configured on the 2960, you'll also need to have subinterfaces on the 2600 series router to route between your native, 10, and 20 vlans. I can't open packettracer files, so I'm not sure if you're already doing that. Also, packettracer is buggy from what I understand, so if it doesn't work in there, it doesn't necessarily mean it won't work on real equipment.

The way to configure the 2600 would be:

int fa0/0

ip address

int fa0/0.10

encaps dot1q 10

ip address

int fa0/0.20

encaps dot1q 20

ip address

You'll trunk the port that the router connects to as well.

Need help with a basic Vlan!

Thanks John much appreciated really.

Im trying to vlan from port fa0/3 on the cable coming from the switch to the access point. Whenever i create 2 vlans for the 2 wireless clients and assign them to port fa0/3 (which is the port connected to the switch from the access point) only one of them will be allowed through by pinging. So i setup a trunk to allow both through here and although everything pings ok it dont seem right as some of the commands you have said above i did not do.

Do i need to set up a native vlan? Im quite new to this and im trying to kinda crash course it atm cause i dont have much time to get my work in.

Are there any more configs i would need to enter for the router that you could help me with please?

The ssid that the user attaches to will place them in the correct vlan. The native vlan could/would be used to manage the AP and it defaults to vlan 1. If you're still having a problem, can you post the config of the AP, switch, and the router?

HTH,
John
