Setting up VLAN to place access point on separate network
Posted on 2009-04-12
My current office LAN is setup as such:
Internet --> Router --> Switch --> Mulitple Computers & Access Point
I would like to put the Access Point on it own VLAN however I'm new to setting up VLAN's and I'm not sure of the terminology.
Procurve 1800 Switch setup:
Port 1: Router
Port 2: PC1
Port 3: PC2
Port 4: PC3
Port 5: PRINTER
Port 6: Unused
Port 7: Unused
Port 8: Access Point
I would like to setup ALL PC's + Printer (Ports 2-5) and Router (port 1) on VLAN1 & the Access Point (Port 8) and Router (Port 1) on VLAN2.
I have created VLAN2 and checked boxs for ports 1 & 2.
The part I dont understand is setting the Port Config Options: The config menu allows me to make each port VLAN aware, Ingress Filtering, and Tagged and Untagged & Allows to the set either PVID 1 or 2.
My goal is to have both VLAN1 and VLAN2 access the internet both not each other. I want to isolate the access point so that the HOTSPOT doesn't have access to OFFICE computeres.
