I am having an issue with a multiple VLAN setup on my network and I’m hoping someone here with Pakedge experience can provide some help and let me know where I have gone wrong. I have been using my Pakedge router, switches, 3 AP’s and network controller for over 2 years with absolutely no issues with only VLAN1. Now I want to separate some of my equipment out to separate VLAN’s for a better network reliability but I can’t get the VLAN’s to talk to each other. I added a separate “test” IP camera to VLAN2 for testing purposes but I can’t see the assigned IP address to the camera and I can’t access it. I set it up with a DHCP reservation of 10.0.2.240 in the router.
I have the following equipment and connected as follows.
RK-1 router - WAN1 connected to ISP modem, LAN1 connected to port 24 of the SK24 switch
SK-24 switch - port 20, 21 & 22 connected to Pakedge access points. Port 18 connected to S26e switch 1, port 19 connected to S26e switch 2, port 23 connected to NK-1 network controller, port 24 connected to router
NK-1 network controller
S26e switch #1, all ports connected to multiple computers, Control4 equipment and IP cameras, etc
S26e switch #2, all ports connected to NAS’s and Control4 equipment, etc
My main VLAN1 has DHCP range of 10.0.1.1 - 10.0.1.250 and has always been this way (and always worked fine). I use DHCP reservations for all my wired and wireless equipment.
I enabled VLAN2 and “enable zone bonding” is checked. VLAN2 has an IP address of 10.0.2.1.
On my SK-24 switch I set port 9 to VLAN2 and all other ports are VLAN1. Under port assignment I have set hybrid to port 24.
On my router I set a DHCP reservation for a test camera to 10.0.2.240 and I plugged that camera into port 9 on the SK-24 switch.
When I try to access the test camera from my computer, it can’t find it. Says not available. My computer is connected to the access point which is on VLAN1. When I look at the router status it shows all of the DHCP leases at 10.0.1.x except it does NOT show the test camera at 10.0.2.240. Only 10.0.1.x leases are listed.
Are you able to tell my why I can’t access VLAN2 devices? I would eventually like to set up separate VLAN’s for all of my equipment to clean up my network but until I get one test camera working I don’t want to mess with the others.
I have attached a couple pictures for reference. I hope they help. Please note when I took the picture of the switch screen I had the test camera unplugged so that’s why it’s showing as a black port and not white. When I plug the camera in it turns white like the other used ports.
I’m hoping someone here can help.
Thanks in advance.
