Posted: Mon Apr 22, 2013 21:45 Post subject: Need help with VLAN setup
I posted this over in the Advanced Networking section, but didn't have any luck over there, so figured I'd try here.
I have been at this for a couple days now and just can't seem to figure it out. Here is the setup I'm looking for:
WAN Port - Internet
Physical port 1 - Trunk port with default VLAN, VLAN3, and VLAN4
Physical port 2 - Trunk port with default VLAN, VLAN3, and VLAN4
Physical port 3 - Trunk port with default VLAN, VLAN3, and VLAN4
Physical port 4 - Default VLAN
Basically the end goal is to have everything on the default VLAN except for SSID 2 and SSID 3, these will be for the kids so that time restrictions can be put into place for those two networks, with the default VLAN being unrestricted.
At first I was trying to use the GUI to set everything up, but then came across various posts that mention that the GUI doesn't configure VLAN's properly, so I switched to using the command line. Based on a bunch of posts I have read, this is what I have come up with for my config:
nvram set vlan2ports="4 8"
nvram set vlan0ports="1 2 3 4 5*"
nvram set vlan1ports="1t 2t 3t 4 8*"
nvram set vlan3ports="1t 2t 3t 8"
nvram set vlan4ports="1t 2t 3t 8"
nvram set port0vlans="2"
nvram set port1vlans="1 3 4"
nvram set port2vlans="1 3 4"
nvram set port3vlans="1 3 4"
nvram set port4vlans="1"
nvram set port5vlans="1 2 16"
nvram set vlan0hwname="et0"
nvram set vlan1hwname="et0"
nvram set vlan2hwname="et0"
nvram set vlan3hwname="et0"
nvram set vlan4hwname="et0"
When I put those commands in, do a nvram commit, and then reboot, everything on the unmanaged switch works great, but the AP's fail to get a DHCP lease. I have DHCPD's set up for VLAN3 and VLAN4 (configured in the GUI), but it still doesn't work. I have also read that the physical ports on the router don't necessarily match up to the port numbers DD-WRT uses, so I have no idea if the ports I am using in my config are even correct. Any help here would be greatly appreciated, I'm going freakin' nuts.
OK, now I see that you are using 3 APs and all 3 APs have 3 subnets. At first I thought each AP had a separate subnet.
I'm currently using KONG-VPN Build 20575 which based on DD-WRT. I have Tagging enabled and working through the GUI configuration without using the CLI commands see my signature below.
At first I used the CLI commands in the Wiki and it didn't work with Build 20575. I ended up doing the 30/30/30 reset and configuring via the GUI and my 2 subnets that also run through a 802.1q enabled smart switch works great.
Before trying another build do a complete reset 30/30/30 and configure through the GUI and see if that works. _________________ Wired GigaBit Backbone

hey sunstatetech did you found out what the promblem was? I am having some problems and you have the same setup as i do. On the r7000 theres the vlan gui and theres the networking tab. On the networking tab theres a vlan tagging section and that where i get confused.
