    I need a help on something… if in one port i want to connect 2 host. An Avaya Phone and a Computer, this is bc the avaya phones have an additional port to the desktop so the port will receive 2 mac addresses that will require 2 different vlans… do i need to configure trunk? Can you explain that as well?

  2. 'Hi René, big thank you for this tutorial.
    It helped me started with the process which is great, but even though i followed it step by step, i got stuck at the ‘Port Vlan membership setting’.Actually, when i try to join my created vlan, there is only a blank window under the ‘select vlan’ part i cant see any of the vlan i created earlier in the process.
    After redoing each step again, I thought that i missed something aside of your explanations, and wondered if maybe i shouldnt swith the system Mode to L3 and get further options activated first, like an IPV4 int

  3. Hi Rene

    After another day of banging my keyboard I learned a few things.

    1 - my Barracuda DCHP sever needs to be rebooted on changes - many times it was not giving DCHP (which led me to think VLANS were broken) but on static assignments of IP the VLAN could ping the Firewall. This took 2 days to figure out.

    1. I finally think I got the TRUNKING correct. I did it this way

    Port 1 - TRUNK - 10UP, 100T, 200T
    Port 2 - 49 - ACCESS in 3 groups of ports for 10, 100 200

    IPV4 routing enabled on Cisco
    Subnets and DCHP all defined on Firewall

    VLAN routing first set as DCH

  4. Hi Rene,

    I hope I’m in the right place here…

    I have been following through your example here and I think is the closest example I’ve found to what I’m trying to do, but I think I’m missing a few things

    …like where do the different IP’s & ranges get set for each VLAN, and can those separate VLAN’s be setup to do the DCHP assignments for the devices in each VLAN?

    Here’s briefly what I’m trying to accomplish…

    I have a network on a Comcast fiber with public static IP’s I have a cisco router 1941 up front, then a cisco SG300 switch to handle traffic connections betw

  5. Hi Rene, thanks for your reply, but I think I definitely need a bit more…

    First I’ve been thinking about this a bunch and wondering if I’m over complicating this…
    So yes I have 1941 SG300#1 (to fw, phone & data app using 3 ports w/public ip’s) …and add, SG300#2 to my WAP’s

    I can use another public IP for SG300#2 (but not enough for WAPs), so SG300#2 can be like xx.yyy.76.30 and can point it to my GW xx.yyy.76.1 and I have that working but when I plug my laptop into SG#2 I get a DCHP IP but in my xx.yyy.76.range…my thought was to have a DHCP to assign IPs in
