How to set up 802.1Q on DLink DGS-3048 48 Port Switch?
Posted on 2008-10-09
I recently purchased a 48 port Gigabit DLink switch model DGS-3048.
I am primarily used to Cisco terminology when setting up 802.1Q so I'm running into some issues hooking this up to our router.
In Cisco terminology, it is called Trunking - multiple VLANs being tagged and transmitted down a single cable. With our Cisco router it was simple, I set the port to Trunk mode and it works with one of our other switches perfectly.
In our new DLink switch, I've tried tagging the ports I want to do 802.1Q and setting the rest as "egress" in the appropriate VLANs, but I can't seem to get it working correctly.
I set the switch's management VLAN to VLAN3, and that seems to have made all of the ports give the device plugged in to them an IP on VLAN3.
Anyone out there know DLink switches and can help me set up what is called "Trunking" in Cisco terminology?
