DGS-1224T and DGS-1210-24 VLAN woes
« on: October 11, 2011, 09:57:41 AM »

Good Day all and greetings from South Africa

Please can someone out there who is a guru on D-Link switches possibly assist me, I have 2 Dlink Switches (DGS-1224T and DGS-1210-24), I am trying to setup a simple basic VLAN accross the switches, but seem to be hitting a brick wall. Config is as follows.

Configuration -> 802.1Q VLAN
I have the default Vlan 1 with all ports untagged. I edit Vlan 1 and make port 17,19,20 "not member"
I click "Add VID" and create a new Vlan ID of 10 and a Name of "Guest" and choose ports 17,19,20 as untagged, and apply.

Now I have Vlan 10 with the 3 ports, when i test it, all the devices plugged in on those 3 ports can see each other and all is good.

If I do the the exact same config on the DGS-1210-24, same thing, all devices in that vlan can see each other, However I need the VLAN traffic to pass between the 2 switches and this is where I fall down.

The 2 switches are joined together via port 24 (i.e port 24 of the DGS-1224T connects to port 24 of the DGS-1210-24.

I now go to Configuration -> 802.1Q VLAN and choose port 24 as tagged (on both switches), click "Apply"...but alas...I cannot get Vlan traffic to pass between the 2 switches...

Can someone please tell me what I am missing? Are the DGS-1224T and DGS-1210-24 "VLAN comaptible" with each other, this should be pretty straight forward, I know on other switches a VLAN trunk has to be configured, but these D-Link units do not have that option.

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum and Vlans as well.

I have the same situation. I configured 3 ports (8,9,10) on my DGS-1224T as VLAN2.
I did the same on my DGS-1210-24 switch as well.

My backbone is port 24 on both switches. I cannot make VLAN2 speak to each other on both switches. What am I missing please?

Can please someone help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there.

Here is a simple way to do it.

Make VLAN 1 untagged and VLAN 2 tagged. Did you guys allow routing between VLAN's in the firewall or whatever routing-mechanism you use? As an alternative you can use the ACL's in the switch.

If you have any further questions about this, then feel free to ask here: http://structureit.dk/forum/

We are monitoring that forum, and will post replies daily:-)

best regards
