New to vlans, bridging across multiple L3 switches and not sure where to start so here goes in hopes of learning Layout is this

So I built this network and was able to get everything connected to vlan02 tv , PVR, synology Problem is the synology is sending email reports to the email server, which I see on my phone and is relaying by gmail, but when trying to connect directly I can’t even login or use the finder app to configure doesn’t work, but when I connect the diskstation to the router I can Login and problem is I want the disk station on switch 02 but cant see it , and when i go to diag tools i can/t ping the computer i'm using from any of the 3 switches, nor can i ping the sinology from any of the 3 switches, where do I go from here?

yes that is correct there is 2-1910's and 1-1920

was doing some more work this morning . so i have the home vlan5 i have a computer connected to help try an troubleshoot this from my pc on sw01-p18 /vlan5 to the second computer on SW02-P9/vlan5 i can ping successfully i can access it no issues, the synology is on SW02-P15/16(trunked) -pinging to the inet gateway from computers Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss) -ping from gateway to computer.10 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss -All ports that are access are untagged to the perspective Vlan it will be hosting. -Checked mac address tables on both my PC and the 3 switches for the devices that are not responding and the mac are listed in all 4 tables.

may requre some instruction ? Check whether routing is enabled on the gateway(s). (is this the IPv4 routing table your talking about?) Check whether every gateway has a route to each remote (not sure what your asking? address pointing to each sw from each switch?)(=not directly connected subnet). On the 19xx you're likely restricted to setting static routes. on the i have the following routes setup for each of the following switches firewall is 199.199.175.254/24 Sw01

Those are HPE 1910/1920s, correct?

First, you need to make sure that each end node is properly connect to its home VLAN.

For that, either ping the default gateway from the node or vice versa. You should also be able to ping from any other node in the same VLAN and IP subnet. Of course, the local firewall needs to permit pinging (ICMP echo request and response).

Alternatively, you can check the MAC address table on the uplink switch for the end node's MAC. If it isn't there (or in another VLAN) the access port is not configured correctly. Access ports need to use a single, untagged VLAN.

If the MAC in the VLAN look like their all on the directly connected switch and none on the inter-switch (trunk) links, then the trunk isn't set correctly. On a trunk you need to make sure that you either tag all VLANs or tag all but one. The untagged VLAN must match on either trunk end.

If your layer-2 structure works correctly, check if your set up (default) routes on the end nodes correctly. Check whether routing is enabled on the gateway(s). Check whether every gateway has a route to each remote (=not directly connected subnet). On the 19xx you're likely restricted to setting static routes.
