Need help with a VLAN
Posted on 2014-03-05
I have a main network closet with a Netgear 12 port fiber switch. From that switch, I have a fiber connection to 6 cottages. In each cottage, port 1-4 each has an Aruba AP-105 connected to it. Port 5 is the trunk port back to the main network closet, ports 6-24 is VLAN 12 which is the guest network, and 25-48 is VLAN 11 which is the private network. VLAN 1 is the default management VLAN. VLAN 11 is 192.168.1.0 and VLAN 12 is 192.168.2.0.
Here is the issue: When I originally set this up, All of the Aruba's could find each other and it auto creates a mesh network. I went onsite today, and the AP's are pulling a 192.168.2.0 IP as they should, but I can only access/ping the AP's if I'm on VLAN 11 with an IP of 192.168.1.0. And each AP is acting on it's own. I can login to each of them individually, but they are not finding each other, probably because of my misconfiguration in the VLAN somewhere.
Ports 1-4 are tagged for VLAN 11 and 12 and VLAN 1 is Untagged, which is default and it won't let me change that.
