Simple VLAN question for Netgear GS7090TPS switch
Posted on 2011-09-22
We purchased a new netgear switch to replace an older one. We just use the basic functions with the exception of 3 VLANs: 102 (data) 112 (guest which is segmented besides a printer and the gateway) and 202 (voice). The older swtich makes no use of the default 1 VLAN. This essentially made PVID 202 use ports 1-24, PVID 112 use ports 25-28, and PVID 102 using 29-48.
I set everything up exactly on the new switch but doing so locks me out of online management interface as I have read that it requires VLAN 1 to be accessible. I figured I could just use VLAN 1 in place of the 102 VLAN on the other switch. This kind of works but the problem is this default VLAN then untags itself from any port which does not use 1 as its PVID. This makes it so that VLAN 112 cannot access anything outside of its own VLAN.
Essentially my question is, how do I set up VLANs without using the default vlan of 1 and still be able to access the management interface. Thanks!
