Setting up a Vlan on a Dante network

(1/2) > >>

Riley Casey:
So lighting stopped by to look into the possibility of hopping on our fiber to get some DMX routed in a very wireless DMX unfriendly venue.  They were unable to get it to work but since this had been a back burner thing I wanted to implement anyway I dug into it after they gave up.  After a firmware update the first test switch seemed to be a bit more compliant about accepting the settings but one thing I'm not clear on is the PVid setting. Does this screen shot look correct for a VLan on ports 7 & 8 ?  I'd like  to be sure I've got this right before I reconfigure seven more switches.

Private Virtual ID, yes ports 7&7 are in VLAN ID 10. 


There may or may not be another screen of what VLAN's are mapped.  You just want to make sure that ports 7&8 are not also allowed in the default VLAN.

How are you trunking your data around?  I don't see any trunk ports though I'm not familiar with that switch model.  Is it Netgear?  I'm not so familiar with Netgear.

Since you're in working on the network it might be wise to just setup say 10 vlans that are trunked around.  That way when you need to have some segregated traffic all you have to do is just provision the ports to whatever vlan you need on a per-switch basis and then the traffic will flow.  10 is probably way more than you'd ever need and it won't cause problems just having them there doing nothing.

If I knew what trunking was I'd be way ahead of where I am now.  My understanding of networking is limited to Wikipedia articles and manufacturer FAQs. What I'm trying to do is simply create, in the analog sense, a two channel switch with ports 1-6 and the two fiber ports on the default '0' Lan and copper ports 7 & 8 on a separate Vlan with data from the virtual lan ports not touching the main lan data. Yamaha Dante training classes have suggested this set up to keep Wifi routers and other non-Dante traffic off the sacred Dante network.  Is this not a valid approach?

Wikipedia describes trunking as a Cisco specific protocol.  Is that be something that would be applicable to Netgear switches?

You should be all good with the setup you posted.  See my note Riley.


Cisco has their own trunking protocol called VTP it was developed before IETF standard 802.1q which is the new, open trunking protocol.


Trunking protocol is simple, it bundles groups of VLAN's on a single (or group of uplinks) between switches and sometimes routers.
