I have two new 3Com 3CDSG10PWR (10 port POE switches).
I'm not the best with Vlan's so I'm hoping someone can help me out here or point me in the right direction.
I have one switch in 1 room and the other in another room. Both are connected to each other via PORT 10.
1 switch is connected to a port on a sonicwall that I have configured for wireless traffic. I am going to be doing guest / secured wireless access, but have to pass the vlan information from the sonicwall on through to the switches.
What is the best way for me to do this?
My unsecured network is VLAN 10 and the secured is VLAN 20.
I know it's rather simple that I need to mark all 10 ports on each switch with VLAN 10 and 20, and that should cover it, but what about PORT 10 which is essentially the trunk port between both switches. what do I set that one up with?
Also I'm having a hard time finding any sort of commands for the 3com switch.
I'm logged into it via console, but none of the command work that I see in the documentation. I'm thinking I may not be at the enable prompt, but if I type "enable" or "ena" I get a "invalid command" back.
