Dlink DWL-2100AP VLAN tagging not working

I have an Dlink wireless accesspoint DWL-2100AP.
I want to use it with two SSIDs in two VLANs.

I have enabled "multiple SSDI" and "enable VLAN state" and configured one with VLAN1 and another with VLAN 4.
It is connected to a trunk port in a cisco switch.

Problem is that is just doesn't seem to work. Seems like the accesspoint doesnt tag the traffic. I can connect to the "SSID itself".

Anyone who has sucessfully configured this?

How is your Cisco switch configured for these VLANs? Tagged or Untagged there? And from there what other VLANs will make use of these VLANs?

Generally VLAN 1 is your default VLAN, at least on most switches. You could probably just do it with VLAN 5 omitting VLAN 1.

the port to LAN is this:
interface FastEthernet0/1
 switchport access vlan 4
 spanning-tree portfast

the trunk port to access point is this:
interface FastEthernet0/2
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 4
 spanning-tree portfast

My plan was to get this simple setup working, and after that setup 3 VLANs on accesspoint+switch to separate two guest SSIDs from my LAN.

It actually did work with a switch.
My problem was with a Cisco ASA frewall. The trunk port didn't accept untagged VLAN1, before upgraded to ASA8.0(4)
