Configuring VLAN's

We have several VLANs within our network. We have fiber comming into our building which connects to a netgear managed switch, I have configured several of the ports to be 'Trunk' ports (opening all VLANs) I ran a cable from one of the Trunk ports to a dell managed Switch and need some help configuring it.

For some reason I can get it to work, but I cannot web access it. I am not sure how to type the problem I am having but would like some help in terms of VLAN membership (tagged to a particular vlan) VLAN port settings, and I know I am missing something.

What type of Dell switch? Can you access it though the console port?

Here is a cli reference for dell. While it states for a specific model,  the command should work for your switch also, if it is a managed dell switch.

Dell PowerConnect 2724, yes I can access it through Port 1 but If I connect through that port I cannot surf the web.

Could you post the config. The port connecting to your netgear needs to be a set as a trunk also. You will also need to create the vlans on the dell switch.

On the dell screen shot, the port that you want to have as a trunk needs to be set to tagged.  For the other ports leave untagged, but select what vlan you want the specific ports to be in on the Vlan Port Settings page. Sorry for the late response. I somehow missed the email notifying me of your comment.
