We currently have the following.
3Com 2900 series switches. Network range 192.168.10.0 Netgear WAG102 Access points Default VLAN of vlan1 on the switches (essentially not configured - default setup) Also some un-managed switches at the edges of the network.
We are now in a position where we need to do the following.
- Enable a public access network for wifi throughout the building to exit
- In the future, move our IP based phones to their own network
All ports in the switch(s) were by default untagged vlan 1 - this is how everything currently operates (essentially no VLAN)
What I've attempted to do:
To keep everything that is currently running on the network (nearly 200 devices) running without changing their configs I have made VLAN 20 on the switch for the wifi network.
In the WAG102 set the management VLAN to be VLAN 1
reboot the AP to make this take effect - can no longer reach the AP
I have attempted to TAG the port the AP is plugged into as VLAN1 TAGGED , but get the error that VLAN 1 cannot be changed. I have tagged the port as VLAN20 and left it as untagged VLAN 1 but still no joy.
I suppose my question is - how can I leave all my current devices on VLAN 1 (default) and use it as the management VLAN whilst introducing VLAN 20
Sorry if my question isn't articulated particularly well. I'm only attempting to make the VLAN on one switch to begin with (the AP and router are all plugged into this)
Thanks in advance
