VLAN Setup

VLAN Setup

Hello Netgear community, 

I just recently purchased a GS108Tv2 switch, and I'm trying to configure two VLANs on the switch. After configuring my PfSense box and my GS108Tv2 switch, I connected a PC to a switch port and there was no Internet connection. Here is a drawing showing the network that I am trying to configure:

Here is my GS108Tv2 System configuration:

Configure VLANs:

Advanced VLAN Membership (Assign VLAN to switch port(s))

Home VLAN (VLAN 20):

Tagged port(s): 1 (Is connected to PfSense LAN)           Untagged port(s): 2, 3, 4, 5 (Connected to Laptops)

Computer Lab VLAN (VLAN 30):

Tagged port(s): 1 (Connected to PfSense LAN)                Untagged port(s): 6, 7 (Connected to Lab Laptops)

Temporary VLAN 1: (Management port)

Untagged port(s): 8

 

Port PVID Configuration:

I am not able to ping the Netgear switch nor the router when I am connected to VLANs(20 or 30). When I plug a computer into port 8(Default VLAN1) I am able to ping the switch, but cannot ping the router. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong? I appreciate any suggestions or advice anyone can give me because I am completely lost. Thanks!

Re: VLAN Setup

Hi thatnoobguy,

 

It seems that your VLAN configuration on the GS108Tv2 switch is correct.  Let us isolate the problem.  Here are the steps:

 

1. Disconnect the GS108Tv2 switch from the PfSense router.

2. Connect a PC directly to a port on the PfSense router that is a member of VLAN20.

3. Check if the PC gets a valid IP address from VLAN20 configured on the PfSense router.  Check also if you can ping 192.168.20.1/24 and able to access the internet.

4. Connect a PC directly to a port on the PfSense router that is a member of VLAN30.

5. Check if the PC gets a valid IP address from VLAN30 configured on the PfSense router.  Check also if you can ping 192.168.30.1/24 and able to access the internet.

 

Kindly answer the questions below:

 

a. From step 3, are you able to get a valid IP address from VLAN20?  Are you able to ping 192.168.20.1/24 and able to access the internet?

b. From step 5, are you able to get a valid IP address from VLAN30? Are you able to ping 192.168.30.1/24 and able to access the internet?

c. What is the current firmware version of the GS108Tv2?

 

I look forward to your response.

Re: VLAN Setup

Hey DaneA, 

Thanks for your advice on trouble shooting this problem! I do not know what I did last night, but somehow my configurations got really messed up. By using your trouble shooting checklist, I was able to figure out both problems that werecausing havoc on my network. One being pfsense static ip was /1 instead of /24, and the other was VLAN30's configuration somehow got erased. Oh plus, the firmware was 5.0.5.10 instead of 5.4.2.19 so I still have a lot of checks and double checks to do before putting pfsense/switch onto my network. I appreciate your help!
