Netgear Multiple Vlans per port setup (Like Cisco 3550)
Posted on 2005-04-15
We have some FSM7326P switches that we were told can do vlan tagging. We use Cisco switches to do it now, but some companies cant afford to install the Cisco POE switches.
Here is the scenario, port 1 is in VLAN2, Port 2 VLAN 3. Vlan 2 is Voice traffic, Vlan 3 is Data traffic. On a Cisco we specify on all the rest of the ports, switchport access vlan 3 and switchport voice vlan 2. We plug in a Cisco phone and a pc into the phone through the built in switch. The PC gets its IP and routes traffic over Vlan 3, while the phone gets its IP and routes voip over vlan 2. I am trying to get the Netgear switch to do the same thing, but finding it rather difficult to find documentation on it, and it uses a GUI as well. Does anyone have a clear understanding of this using the netgear? THe Phones I have to manually setup the vlan information on them since they use CDP to obtain that from the Cisco switches.
