We have 4 conference rooms I'm trying to get set up using a combination of SG108e and SG108PE switches. Our enterprise network is mostly Meraki equipment, and there is a Meraki switch feeding the SG108E in Room A via a "Trunk" port on VLAN1.
Due to a crazy wiring contractor, Room A needs to feed Rooms B and C, and Room B further feeds Room D.
Running VLAN1, and VLAN10. DHCP is available via VLAN10. Wifi access points (Meraki) are connected via VLAN1 in two rooms, and pull PoE from port 4 of the SG108PE switches. PoE cameras and the occasional laptop will connect via VLAN10 in these rooms.
At the first switch in Room A, I can pull DHCP addresses on ports assigned to VLAN10, and I can ping out, reach websites, etc. The wifi in this room does not function, other than providing an SSID beacon, and allowing connections. No traffic passes. Similar situation with Wifi in Room D.
I found this article, which helped a lot, but it does not deal with further downstream feeds: https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/105250
I wish the fix was simple -- like having the contractor run the cabling correctly, but that's not in the cards. What am I missing that is (apparently) killing traffic from filtering downstream to the other switches, and conversely, from flowing UP from those switches to reach the rest of the network? When I connect the LinkRunner to switches in rooms other than A, it generally will identify one of the Meraki access points as the closest switch.
Currently, switches are configured like:
(All inbound feeds on port 8, downstream on port 6/7)
A: (feeds B & C on port 6/7)
B: (feeds D on port 7)
