I am trying to set up a new WiFi AP in our HR building. There is a closet in the HR building, with a switch connected by fiber to our main network closet, then to another network closet where the FiOS is at.

I set up a "no switchport" interface on the switch that is directly connected to the Sonicwall with IP I've created the VLAN on our VTP server switch, and I created the route on the switch directly connected to the Sonicwall.

From the switch in the HR building I am able to ping the interface, but not the Sonicwall interface of, and I am able to ping the Sonicwall from the directly connected switch. I've included a map of how I have it set up, still very new with Cisco and have been struggling with this for a few days. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Bottom Switch

  • It sounds like you have the network split into two vlans, but we can't be sure without more information. Can you post the configurations of all three switches?

  • There really isn't enough detail here to provide an answer, consider adding more detail. To start, is there any particular reason you have set the Fa0/24 on the second 3560 in your diagram to no switchport? Leave it as an access port in VLAN 80 just like you did on Fa0/22 on the first 3560. Which device is providing the L3 routing on the network? Can you provide (sanitized) configurations?
