first I appologize for incorrect terminology or understanding or something, but I am new in networking.
I hope here is someone who can help me. I have a problem with creating my first SINGLE VLAN.
This is what I have:
1 - uplink (internet access from router I don't have access to, but there is DHCP enabled and is giving
IP addresses 192.168.2.2/100 away, SUBNET 255.255.255.0, GATEWAY 192.168.2.1
2 - 16 port NETGEAR smart switch GS716T
3 - PC with win7 professional 64bit
If I plug intetnet uplink to port 1 and PC to port 8 on the switch, everyhting works fine, i will get and IP
adress from range 192.168.2.2/100 to PC and can connect to internet fine.
NOW I want to create a VLAN11 and put both, the PC and uplink port to it.I have done it this way........
1 - in switch setup created new VLAN11, there is a default VLAN1 on the switch I didn't touch.
2 - I have assigned VLAN11 ID's to ports 1 and 8. All remaining ports remain on VLAN1 as default.
3 - in port membership VLAN11, I have tagged port 1 (i read somewhere that uplink should be tagged,
and I would also like to have more VLANS in future to connect to internet)
4 - in port membership VLAN11, I have tagged also port 8 (I read that if a port will have more VLANs in future
than it has to be tagged. In future I would like to have four different VLANS on this PC)
5 - so the ports look like this now....
VLAN 1 - ports 1-16 Untagged (default)
VLAN 11 - ports 1 and 8 Tagged
6 - ok, now I lost my internet connection. I understand it is correct, as the PC and uplink are in ports 1 and 8 I
changed to VLAN11
7 - so now I go to my PC, LAN->properties->Configuration and find the VLANs tab. I ask to create VLAN11
8 - a new connection(icon) VLAN11 is created. Both the old LAN and new VLAN11 appear to be active,
but there is a warning not identified network... and of course the PC has no connection to switch or internet
(I cannot ping not the switch or any IP destination on internet.
Maybe I am stupid, but did I missed some steps/settings? In theory the VLAN setting looked pretty easy :)
