WAP200E Vlan Question

    I have a WAP200E AP and a SRW2008MP switch. I'm trying to setup the AP so I can manage it off one VLAN and the Wireless Clients are on another. I know this is possible, but I can't seem to get it to work.

    I don't know if anyone is familier with the SRW2008MP switch, but by default it doesn't let you change any settings for the Default (1) VLAN. Which means I can't tag it for trunks.

    I'm assuming this is why when I set the VLAN Trunking thing up on the AP I can't access it any more and I have to reset it.

    Has any one else had this problem before? This can't be an odd combination of AP and Switch so some one has to have had this problem...

    I'm going to try and setup another VLAN as my management VLAN and see if I can't get it working that way - I'll post my seccess/failure when I finish...

    Unless you can subnet your vlans (which you cannot in most of these devices) your users will still beable to get to the management console. For the most part just as you have mentioned, vlans in these soho devices are a software based port implementation not a tagged vlan. So as to say, even though you create 3 different vlans, all 3 will have a default gateway of the router which will give all machines access to the management console just not access to each other.

    I have figured out my problem.

    The default setting for the default VLAN (which I cannot change) for a trunk, is that the VLAN ID is Untagged. It seems I have to match this on the AP...

    Attached is a screenshot of the setting on the AP...

    Back to your initial question, seeing from the screenshot you can tag vlans. As long as the switch and the AP are speaking the same vlan language (802.1q) you should be good to go. Another question is are you doing this wirelessly as in the screenie or are you trying it wired as well?
