    Bitdefender Box Reviewed

    Thank you for your excellent questions! Below are the answers I can provide to your questions. The DHCP server on the Bitdefender Box is not configurable. I don't see an option to disable the Box's DHCP server, so I doubt you could use a router's DHCP server. I've tested the Bitdefender Box...

    Example 2 in this article (https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwan/lanwan-howto/32486-how-to-segment-a-small-lan-using-tagged-vlans) covers configuring 802.1q vlans with a non-vlan aware router.

    LGS552P Port Base VLAN Support

    Great discussion! The LGS552P does not have a menu option for port based VLANs. Each port can be an Access port limited to being an untagged member of a single VLAN, or a Trunk port where it can be an untagged member of a single VLAN and a tagged member of multiple VLANs. My conclusion is...

    Intra-VLAN visibility GS724T switches

    See my article here - http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwan/lanwan-howto/32486-how-to-segment-a-small-lan-using-tagged-vlans Example 2 should meet your requirements. You need to use three VLANs. In my example, I use a Netgear GS108T, but the configs are pretty similar to the GS724T.

    VLAN How To: Segmenting a small LAN

    Your configs on the switches in the diagram seem fine. Port 24 on your back bone switch appears to be correct. You'll need to setup a trunk and VLANs on the router, which enables inter-VLAN routing, for devices on VLANs 4-6 to get to the Internet. My Part 2 article goes through the steps.

    VLAN How To: Segmenting a small LAN

    1. Correct 2. Correct 3. Correct - does your router support VLANs? See below. 4. If VLAN1 is the default VLAN and you're using it, then set the trunk PVID=1. 5. If you left the management VLAN at default, the switch IP should be on the subnet assigned to VLAN1. If your router...

    VLAN How To: Segmenting a small LAN

    Make the trunk ports Untagged ="U" members of VLAN1 and make them Tagged = "T" members of all the other VLANs. That should do it.

    I'd stick with the defaults and use Admit All and Disable.

    VLAN How To: Segmenting a small LAN

    Answers: 1. According to the Netgear manual, the DEFAULT VLAN is VLAN 1. All other created VLANs are STATIC VLANs. 2. In your scenario, port x on switch 1 is connected to port y on switch 2. Configure port x and port y with the same VLAN settings. Both port x and port y should be a member...

    How To Improve Network Performance Series

    How to setup router as the "modem" only part of the network configuration suggested? It sounds like the fiber box is the "modem" and your router is the only router in your network. You can verify this by looking at the WAN/Internet IP address of your EA6900 router. If the WAN/Internet...

    How To Improve Network Performance Series

    Should I "cascade" my 3 switches or connect them all directly to the Router? I would connect your router to switch 1, then connect the other two switches to switch 1.

    IPv6 Routing

    sinshiva - Thank you for the reply! Two follow up questions: You mention CenturyLink hands out a /56 via DHCP and "soho routers are generally going to zero out the next 8 bits." Are you saying that the IPv6 address on the soho router WAN interface may appear as a /64? If your router...

    IPv6 Routing

    Astroroxy - Curious how you're doing with IPv6. I have a couple questions if you don't mind. Did you get IPv6 working? If so, what did you do? Who is your ISP? You mention your ISP assigned you a /56. How did your ISP assign the /56? Was the /56 assigned via DHCP or other method...
