    RUckus SSID VLANs

    We currently have a ZoneDirector and several APís in our school. We have setup three SSIDs, (staff, students and guests).

    The staff WLAN has no VLAN attached to it (default network is VLAN 1), the student and guest WLANs are set to tag to VLAN 2.

    We have a DHCP server on VLAN 2 which student/guest wireless clients are able to receive IP settings from but then are unable to ping the DHCP server or browse the internet.

    We have attached the wireless client to the wired network in VLAN 2 and are able to receive IP settings and browse the internet without any problems.

    We are setting the VLAN for the student/guest WLAN by using the Advanced Options ďSet Default VLAN ID toĒ.

    Some ideas for you,

    - I know that when i was testing vlans (with 3com kit) by default every new vlan could see each other except anything on vlan1. only devices on vlan1 could see vlan1, the management vlan

    - Have you checked that the port(s) the APs are connected to are trunk ports and tagged for the required VLANs?

    - appropriate routing rule for the vlan - IP Routing rule 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x (x.x.x.x ip adress of proxy)

    Problem solved, thanks to Stuart. Our VLAN's on the switches were ok. It seems that wireless isolation and VLANs don't work together very well.

    stariq, we use netgear switches with 3com core switches and have 2 VLANS (default 1 and wireless 2).

    A few pointers for VLANs are:

    Create a second VLAN on all switches
    Make sure that any ports connected to AP's, wireless controllers are set to tag on the second vlan
    Switches usually have an option to create trunk ports linking to other switches (or tag the ports linking switches)

    Have a look at these posts aswell

    VLANs

    It's also woth looking at the switch manufacturers website, they sometimes have examples of vlan setups.

    Hope this gives you an idea of where to start
