How to set up VLANs on Dell PowerConnect 6224 to access single router
Posted on 2010-01-10
I've done some searching on this topic and have found several good articles but none that target my specific situation and so do not have a clear solution.
The requirement is to use an existing Apple Time Capsule acting as the gateway to the Internet and sole DHCP server on a network. Then integrating a Dell PowerConnect 6224 for setting up 2 VLANs (20 and 30) that don't have access to each other but can access the Time Capsule for both Internet access and IP address assignments.
I've set up the VLANs, assigned them names, binded IP subnets to them, plugged the Time Capsule into a port set to a 3rd VLAN (10), enabled bootpdhcprelay, plugged a computer into a port on VLAN 20 but get the dreaded 169.x.x.x address.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
