My boss wants to start using VLANs on one of our networks - so I have been thrown into the deep end here a bit.
I think my biggest problem is that I don't seem to quite grasp how VLAN tagging works (it anyone has a link to a free video that would be great).
I have successfully setup-by-YouTube the UBNT Edgeswitch and the 7 VLANs are working fine. Now I need to push the VLANs through to the outside buildings which are connected by a Mikrotik Nstream network.
The setup is basically as follows (attached as file):
Edgeswitch ---> RB1 (SXT) ---> RB2 (433 - Highsite) ---> RB3 (LHG) ---> UniFi AP (VLAN3)
---> RB4 (LHG) ---> UniFi AP (VLAN4)
---> RB5 (LHG) ---> UniFi AP (VLAN5)
The port on the Edgeswitch is set up in VLAN6 as a U Trunk port with VLANs 3, 4, and 5 as T.
WLAN and Eth1 on RB1 and RB2 are bridged, so they should pass the VLAN info through???
If I then on the LHG's add the WLAN to VLAN6 U and then the ETH1 to VLAN4 T I don't get any traffic.
Clearly I am not doing this right. Can someone perhaps point me in the right direction?
