Sorry for a redundant sounding thread but I can't seem to glean what I need from the myriad discussions out there. I've got an RB3011 with 6.43 and a trunk (a.k.a. 802.1q port according to other discussions) on ether1 and WAN on ether5. I've got a 16 port smart switch and an 8 port smart switch trunked from the 16 port. I wish to have an access port to one VLAN on ether2 and another VLAN on ether3 and when bridging, cannot communicate with anything/no DHCP. Another issue is that while I can connect to access ports on the 16 port and communicate fully, access ports on the 8 port can only communicate with devices on access ports on the 16 port, not the internet. I am learning my way around the CLI and if posting exports can help, let me know. I have verified the switch configs umpteen times but can show those as well. TIA for any ideas to check!
