Hello,

I am having the same issue as many many others posted elsewhere (Amazon and co). This is the only thing why this switch is "not good and not acceptable" for me.

TP-Link disabled completely modifications for VLAN 1 even in Web interface as in the mgmt software.

My issue is, that our company's network topology even uses tagged VLAN 1 packets in the "Switch Inter-connections", untagged packes are only allowed on the client side ports. To get the TL-SG-108E switches part of the network (we already ordered 10 pcs of them) they must accept and repeat VLAN 1 tagged packets but all the options to modify that are greyed out. In this case I need to set some ports VLAN 1 to be tagged (for the way to another switch) some to be forbid (when they should NOT be part of VLAN 1) and some to be untagged (for client connections).

I know, that you can not compare a HP enterprise switch with this "cheap crap" but the "cheap crap" may be also very good and usable with only unlocking this feature.

For 99% I think that it is only a software limitation, so with a modification in firmware this problem should be completely solved.

Even the setting of the mgmt vlan should be possible!!!

Please, please, please, if possible dear TP-Link team, please implement a fully working VLAN configuration into that brand of switches.

I or we know, that it is possible to close out ourself of the web interface but therefore we have a good working reset button ;)

Thank you

Please also write to TP-Link support as I did already several times. The more people complain, the better is the change that TP-Link will modify the firmware. Thx!

already done...

sent the same text, but I think they'll ignore it.
Can't understand why, the product for itself is great, outer this big issue.

did anyone try to crossflash the switch with a netgear GS108E v3 firmware? perhaps the realtek controller is the same, netgear enabled features like modifying vlan 1. But netgear is not as sympatically as tp-link ;)

greetings

Hello,

i got following answer to my question:

Guten Tag Herr XXX,
vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage!

Der VLAN 1 lässt sich standardmäßig nicht ändern.

Das wird in der Zukunft auch so bleiben.

Bei weiteren Fragen helfen wir Ihnen gern.


in clear and hard words,

it will be not editable by default and this behavior will stay in future, they will never change it.

So, this switch is unusable in VLAN environment and should not be labelled as vlan capable!!!

Support? NO!

Yes, it's a pity that they use the fixed VLAN ID 1 for the management VLAN. This way it doesn't fit into our network topology, too.

If you still have the switch, would you please give this method a try to disable vlan1. Thanks,

The OP and me need not only to disable VLAN 1, we need to use it on a trunk in tagged mode and in my case I need it to be configurable through the web UI for our customers. Therefore, I recommend to use another switch which allows full use of VLAN 1 until TP-Link has fixed it on SG108E/PE (if it will be fixed at all).

What is a VLAN?
2017-11-28 03:06:19
Last week I bought a TL-SG1016DE and TL-SG108E for bulding a small Lan with a few VLANs (Internal, External, DMZ) because price and features was good.
First logon and I've immediately realized I wasted my money because no way to set an Admin VLAN, no way to remove a port from VLAN1 and no fresh FW available

Now looking for other brands!!!

We are now trying to making a new firmware to resolve it, and maybe we could provide some beta firmware next week if it goes well.


Glad to hear this. Please also fix this for TL-SG108PE. And while your engineers are at it, please also fix the Save Config bug for the TL-SG108PE version, which recently had been fixed for the TL-SG108E with the last firmware version, but still exists on the TL-SG108PE.

Returned my switch
2017-12-23 02:11:30
I returned my TL-SG1016DE to Amazon today due to this VLAN1 issue. I don't want to wait for firmware fix that who knows if it will work.

Does anyone have suggestion for another switch. My goal is to isolate some IOT devices away from the rest of my home network.
