Hi All,

VLAN is something totally new to me, so a few questions that I've run into. I'm looking to separate our wireless traffic from our LAN traffic.

I'm currently using a HP 5406ZL switch.

Domain Controller(running dhcp/dns) is connected to Port B23 & B24.
Wireless AP(AeroHive) is connected to port D16.

i created VLAN10 on switch and a new scope( on the server.
Domain controller is on VLAN1(
I created a new dhcp scope in the domain controller for

I removed D16 from VLAN1 and added it to VLAN10. I changed D16 from untagged to tagged (i read that if you want the port to talk with more than 1 vlan, i had to tag it)

i enabled dhcp-relay and added ip helper-address to vlan 10. (, which is the DHCP server address)

Is there something i'm missing? when i try to connect, i never get a ip from the DHCP server.
