Multiple SSID, Multiple VLANs, HP Procurve 1810g-24

Posted on 2012-04-07

Hi everyone,

I have currently setup a network for a local church/school.

Equipment is two HP Procurve 1810g-24, a Cisco RV220w, trunked and everything.

The problem I am having is, I am not sure the tag/untag configuration to use for

tagging access points. I have 5 VLANs set up so far. each with their own 192.168.x.x/24 subnet.

I picked up an Engenius EAP150 high powered wireless access point, it can tag vlans, and also provide multiple SSID's.

I am trying to use this AP to broadcast TWO wifi signals that belongs to TWO different subnet....

So in the Engenius Setup, I have it as SSID #1: Staff's Wifi, tag VLAN10. and SSID #2: General user's Wifi, tag vlan20.

But I can't seem to get them both working... I was able to connect get dhcp on vlan10, but not vlan20 through the AP.

I am wondering if its something i am overlooking? Am i suppose to TAG the access point on the switch for the VLAN's that it is tagging? Or do i leave it UNTAGGED?

Thank you very much

VLAN ID 20 must be tagged on two ports of same switch

1. Port connected to AP
2. Port connected to firewall.

trunk port to firewall had always been tagged, since I have multiple vlans on both switch,  I tried to tag the ap on both vlans that it is associating clients to, but it
would only successfully dhcp clients who are associating to the first ssid/vlan.

so If port 16 on my switch is the wireless access point

and the vlan goes as follows
vlan1 - management
vlan10 - staff
vlan20 - general user

and the SSID's the access point is broadcasting out is 1) staff and  2) general user

so I Untag port 16 on vlan1, and then tag vlan10 and tag vlan20?

or do i tag all three? management, vlan10, and vlan20?
