Hi,
I am trying to configure VLAN for the first time.
I wan't to create a VLAN with some wireless access points, so that guests are seperated from the normal network.

First i have a Linksys SRW248G4 switch. I have created a VLAN with ID 2. Port 5 is using VLAN 2.
I then changed port 24 to trunk mode, since this is the port that is connected to the other switch.

The other switch is a HP ProCurve 1800-24G. Here i also created a VLAN with ID 2. Port 1 and 2 is using VLAN 2.
But i can't figure out, how to configure a port to trunk mode? In the web-interface, there is something about trunking, where i have tried to attach port 21, but is the says that i have to connect at least 2 ports?
I have read the manual, but it doesn't help me :(

Hope you can help mo figure out this problem..

Okay- i only find the term tagging in VLAN port config

All the ports are set to accept all packet types - but they can be set to tagged only - is it this?

I just tried that, but it doesn't seem to work.
Is there anything else that should be set on the Linksys? All i did was set port 24 to trunk mode.

in linksys, when you configure vlans, you shoud say, for a particular vlan, that it will be tagged on port 24

Port 24 is set to untagged for VLAN1 - can't change it.
It is set to tagged for VLAN2.

On the HP i cannot set it to be untagged on VLAN 1 and tagged on VLAN 2.
I can only set it to accept all packet types or tagged - for both VLAN's.
