VLAN Tunnel

I have two Cisco WS-C3548-XL switches that are connected by fiber optic cable.  I want to create a VLAN on port 48 of one switch and ports 47 and 48 on the other switch and connect them together.

I have a situation where I have two wireless access points on opposite ends of the office that I want to put on their own VLAN so I can connect them to the DMZ port on the firewall.

Thanks for any help!

Can you provide any more detail on the steps to enter in that information?  I can access the Web GUI and the Comman Line interface via IE.

Turn your laptop into a mobile console!

The CV211 Laptop USB Console Adapter provides a direct Laptop-to-Computer connection for fast and easy remote desktop access with no software to install.

Telnet to the device and login (if so required, I hope it is) then do the following, in order

enable
configure terminal

Then execute the aforementioned config. Web GUI, no idea. I don't use ASDM and never will.

I can successfully enter configuration mode, but when I type in the first command vlan,  I get an error message "Invalid input detected at..." and it's pointing to the L in vlan.  It does not recognize the command vlan.

Okay,

Try:
enable
vlan ?

See if that returns any output. May need to add it to the database the old way.

enable
vlan database

then the prompt is Switch(vlan)#

I can do the first command vlan 2 name WIFI
but nothing else...
