i have the following configuration
isp --- ether1[router]ether3---lan
i talked to my isp to give me 2 vlans, one for connecting to offices in other parts of the city and one for internet access.
each office has it's own public ip /26 class, and in the main office we have a /25 public class.
i tried to create a bridge between the vlan connecting the offices and ether3.
when i add the vlan to the bridge it works ok, when i add ether3 to the bridge i start getting timeout from computers connected to ether3.
when i add ether3 to the bridge i also add it's ip to the bridge interface.
anyone have some suggestions?
Not sure if I can help but…
1. Could you post some config. (if you have any) so far?
2. Are your external IP addresses (fixed) established via DHCP or PPPoE?
3. This sounds like a similar problem I had to do with NAT rules.
