Guest Network

I have a WC7520 with a FS728TP. I have the main vlan working , but I cannot get the guest vlan to work.

 

I added cables from the modem to ports 25/26 

 

The AP are attached to ports 1,2 and 3

 

I have ports 1,2,3 as untagged vlan 1 and 3

 

port 25 as vlan 1

port 26 as vlan 2

 

I get a no ip address error on devices

Model: WC7520|ProSafe 20-AP Wireless Controller

Re: Guest Network

Permitting the VLAN config on the switch, the controller and the WAC is correct (hard to say based on the limited information provided) - is there a DHCP server for the Guest VLAN (being on the router, being on an infrastructure server, being on the controller)?

Re: Guest Network

Hi

(thought I replied but must not have hit the post button)

 

Sorry for the lack of info.

 

Vlan1 is the main vlan 192.168.100.0 subnet

Vlan3 is the guest network 192.168.50.0 subnet

 

DCHP is done by the WC7520. Most devices on Vlan1 are static IP.

the switch is a FS278TPv2

 

Port 1-4 are AP with Vlan1 and Vlan3

Ports 5-20 are vlan1

Port 21 is WC7520 link

Port 25 is Internet 1

Port 26 is Internet 2

 

Due to the location and extremely poor internet, 2 modems are used.

Devices connecting to vlan1 on AP get IPs from the WC7520 ok

Devices on vlan3 dont seem to get an ip data from the WC7520.

 

Should I add a second cable from WC7520 to the switch to covert vlan3 or will vlan1/3 be ok on port 1 of the WC7520.

 

I have searched Youtube for a similar setup but most videos seem to be Ubiquiti gear. I maybe missing the answer.

 

I have never worked with a network like this. Usually always just one network and no guest access

 

Would a network diagram assist any?

Re: Guest Network

Sorted the issue. I had forgotten to Tag the Wc7520 port on the router so it never allowed the datat flow
