Linksys Router VLAN setup from scratch for VoIP; Downloads and browsing home pc's
Posted on 2006-07-16
Home network planned hardware scenario:
Router: linksys Wireless-N router [planned purchase]
VoIP phone service
I have never setup a VLAN at home.
Goal: separate VoIP, Internet downloads and home networking traffic from each other to minimize and target network traffic. I don't want VoIP traffic dropping packets because download traffic or other pc users at home are surfing internet or browsing each others pc's for files.
Computers should be on one VLAN; VoIP and Downloads [entertainment center] pc should each be on their own also.
I will have 4 pc's and one VoIP phone connected simultaneously. I have used Linksys routers for over 5 years, and am pretty familiar with configuration GUIs. The VLAN setup is the part I know nothing about.
How do I accomplish this from scratch?
