Trunk setup on Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch

Trying to setup 2 VLANs to isolate broadcast traffic and setup 1 port as the trunk that will ultimately connect to the router.  Have configured the 2 VLANs, but cannot get both to pass traffic through port 22 which I want as my trunk line.  Can only get each VLAN to pass traffic through port 22 if setup as the same PVID.

Sorry new to this setup, hopefully a fairly simple question.

Hello,

You cannot have two PVIDs on same port. PVID means untagged traffic. There can be only one untagged VLAN on the port, all other VLANs are tagged with respective VLAN ID.
Configure port 22 with PVID 1. Add port 22 under both VLANs membership.
On router side you will have to create sub-interfaces for each VLAN,and tagg them accordingly.

Please telnet to the switch, and enter:
show tech-support config

Send also router model, so I can help you with router configuration. Current configuration on router will also be helpful.

Hope it helps!

Regards!
Port 22 needs to be set to trunk mode.  Then you should be able to add it to each of the vlans.
Port 22 needs to be set to trunk mode.  Then you should be able to add it to each of the vlans. The PVID on port 22 should be set to 1.  Since this switch does not have a serial port everything must be done from the web interface.  Most of the cli commands listed above may not work because of the lack of a serial port for you to connect to.

The CLI commands are not working as listed from exp.  Once I enter configure it doesn't allow vlan commands.  Can you revise or is there a way to set from WEB interface?  Thks
