Good afternoon and many thanks in advance for any assistance you can give with the issues I am having configuring this particular setup.
I have attached a diagram to outline what I am trying to achieve (excuse the amateur nature of it, but it was put together rather hastily).
Currently, I am installing a network which gives both a public and private connection that must be kept isolated from each other using 2 x CPE210 for the trunk link between the two buildings, a TL-SG108PE at both ends of the link and an EAP 110 for the wireless at the client side of the link that has a private SSID and a Guest (public) access.
With the current configuration highlighted in the diagram attached, I get the following conditions
- The Private link works perfectly with the clients picking up an IP address (192.168.1.x) from the BT router back at the main site.
- The Public connection does not pick up an IP address (192.168.10.x) at all from the private BT router as cannot be seen across the link. Even if I enter a static address I cannot see across the CPE link.
- When connected via a wired connection or wirelessly to the client side switch on the private network, I can manage and log onto all the devices along the connection. When connected to a port (vlan 1) of the switch at the main site, I can only manage that particular switch and cannot see the other devices towards the client side.
The configurations of each device is as follows
TL-SG108PE (access point end)
IP Address – 192.168.1.230/24
802.1Q VLAN enabled
VLAN 1 Tagged – Port 8 (PVID 1)
VLAN 1 Untagged – 1,2,3,4,5,7
VLAN 20 Tagged – Port 8 (PVID 1)
VLAN 20 Untagged – Port 6
CPE 210 (access point side)
IP Address – 192.168.1.233/24
Set as AP and a single SSID
CPE 210 (Client side)
IP Address – 192.168.1.234/24
Set as Client and locked to the Access Point with a nice strong signal (100% with very little noise)
TL-SG108PE (Client Side)
IP Address - 192.168.1.231
VLAN 1 Tagged – Ports 7,8 (PVID 1)
VLAN 1 Untagged – Ports 1,2,3,4,5 and 6
VLAN 20 Tagged – Port 7,8 (PVID 1)
IP address – 192.168.1.232/24
SSID – Private (PVID 1)
SSID – Public (PVID 20)
I suspect it is something to do with PVID assignments but can only assign one PVID to each port, therefore cannot have them in both. I have also toyed with the idea that maybe it is because of using the default management VLAN to carry traffic but after three days of working on this problem, my mind is totally frazzled.
Fifteen years ago I used to do this with Cisco equipment every day, but I am a little rusty on it now.
Any assistance or pointers would be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
P.S. Sorry for such a long post but wanted to make sure I had as much detail as possible.
