SG-3100 Bridge Interfaces MVNETA0 and MVNETA1



  • I have purchased this SG-3100 in hopes that I could use all 5 interfaces on the back for my needs.  I would like to have 2 VLANs (10 and 666).  I also have a Ubiquiti AP AC Pro.  I'd like it to hang off of mvneta0 (OPT1).  It should be a trunked interface so both VLAN 10 and 666 are going to that AP.  Then, I'd like LAN 1-4 to be ACCESS ports.  I'd like to assign either VLAN 10 or 666 to any of those ports.  Do I need to setup a BRIDGE to do this?  If so, what is the proper method?  Thanks!

    I would not bridge.

    I would tag the VLANs to another switch if 4 switch ports is not enough.



  • That seems to be the consensus on the IRC channel, however, it would be nice to have more than just 4 interfaces.  I'm still trying to figure out how to trunk an interface on this mvneta1 device.  I need to have LAN1-3 on VLAN 10, and LAN 4 am 802.1q trunk interface for VLANs 10 and 666.

    @joltman:

    IMHO it is not worth all the hassle and performance hits of a software bridge for every VLAN to get just one additional port.

    Need more switch ports? Get more switch ports.

    First, be sure you are on 2.4.2_1. If not, update. Another post forthcoming with details.



  • Derelict,

    Again, thank you for responding!  I've decided to forgo the bridging idea.  In my other post, I bring up some questions I have about the way to properly trunk an interface and change it's native VLAN.  Thanks!
