This is more about VLANs than the router, but I include the model information for completeness' sake. It is a WRVS4400N Linksys VPN Security Router - it has a wireless antenna and 4 physical ports, and supports VLANs.
The router allows for the creation of VLANs. My aim is to create VLAN 1 using two physical ports and the wireless antenna, while having the other two physical ports turned over to VLAN 2.
The router should provide DHCP for VLAN 1. There is a DHCP server on VLAN 2 so the router will not need to provide DHCP. This I have configured and believe to be correctly working.
VLAN 2 will be little more than a gateway between a server and modem on the other side of the router from the server e.g. Modem > Router > Server > Server's LAN.
To the nitty-grity - there is a JPG attached of the possible configurations for the ports from the router. For argument's sake, I'd like Ports 3, 4 and wireless in VLAN 1, with 1 & 2 in VLAN 2.
No DHCP traffic from VLAN 1 should enter VLAN 2.
VLAN 2 should be able to access NTFS shares on VLAN 1
VLAN 1 should not be able to access VLAN 2.
There will be VPN traffic on VLAN 2, but not VLAN 1.
I'm not familiar with how to assign ports for VLANs, so would appreciate an explanation of what Trunk, General and Access means and what the router means where it specifies "acceptable ingress type". I vaguely understand tagging frames from the OSI model, but if there is some special significance for VLANs, please explain that also. Finally, although I could probably figure out from that point how to configure it, a quick definition of how I should configure my ports would be really helpful.
Thanks for reading this question!
