Looking for some info on setting up vlans using powerconnect 6248 switches

Ok,  I have 4 remote sites that are connected over cisco wireless links. I am looking to put these sites into seperate vlans for each site.  I am looking for some assistance as to how each switch should be configured.   I have a 6248 at the main office and a 6248 at each remote site.  Would I simply setup a port for each vlan on the main office 6248 switch ?  Would each sites switch need any confiuration?

i would suggest configuring all the VLANs on the switch in the main office.

Each remote switch would connected back the main switch on a port.  On that particular port, on the main switch, you would only allow the VLAN to be sent over that port.

you could just assign each port at the main office to the correct vlan. Then connect the remote switch to that port. this way you would not need to configure trunking.

Thanks for the response, was very helpful.

Here is the situation at three of the remotes.  I haqve them connected back to the main office via omni-directional antenna to cisco 1300.   How would I go about forwarding those vlans through that radio?

if you only want 1 vlan at each office, then you will not have to pass the 'vlan' information.  simply assign the port on your main switch to the appropriate vlan.  Then connect that port to the omni-directional antenna

I understand that part. But , I have 3 sites that connect to the omni that I would like to have each in their own vlan as well.

oh, if all the sites are connected to that one port, then you will need to enable trunking on it.  Trunking allows all VLAN information to be sent accross one port.
