    Hello everyone,

    I need some help setting up VLAN in Tomato. I'm using last Shibby version, the AIO.
    I'm having problems configuring the VLAN and making it actually work, so I decided to start from scratch. I can't find where's the mistake or why it's not working.

    Main br0 is with DHCP enable.
    I've created a new bridge, br1, with IP and DHCP

    Then I go to VLAN, and create a new interface: VLAN 3/VID 3
    I remove PORT 3 from bridge br0 and assign it to new bridge br1

    Save and reboot.
    Now the strange thing is, when I connect by ethernet to PORT 3 I appear to be connected to br0 instead of br1. In fact, I'm receiving the wrong DHCP range.

    I can see in the interface that PORT3 is up, and assigned to br1, but in device list I appear as connected in br0.

    I attach some pictures that demonstrate it. Anyone has an idea of what am I doing wrong?[​IMG]

    When you have been connected to br0 you must do a relese before you got any connection to br1

    Thanks for the reply. I already did a release, still same problem.

    i've ssh into it and see by yourself

    root@unknown:/tmp/home/root# nvram show | grep vlan.ports
    vlan1ports=2 3 4 8*
    vlan2ports=0 8
    vlan3ports=1 8

    Ii looks like the GUI for VLAN has the ports in reverse order. Seems like a bug to me

    If the ports are in reverse order than you have to switch, "Ethernet Ports State - Configuration" and check "Invert Ports Order" then right order occur. :eek:
