Single VLAN Bridge to Bridge

Sat Jul 06, 2019 1:59 am

So I have a Mikrotik RB 3011 in my current test environment and I am trying to get VLAN 40 which is tagged at the AP connected to my Staff Bridge 192.168.x.x/24 to take dhcp from the Guest bridge 172.16.x.x/23. I have easily set up vlan to work on the same bridge, or by adding a switch external to the RB to get the VLAN to cross over at the switch. But I would like to be able to get the VLAN to traverse the bridges on the mikrotik itself if possible. Searched the forums and tried a few things, gave up for awhile and now coming back to it. I am sure it is a config setting that I am just missing and any help would be appreciated.

You should be looking at using a single bridge, then separating the staff and guest networks using VLAN's and firewall rules.

Another excellent reference.........
