Single ethernet port setup using a managed switch and Vlans
I just wanted to know if something like this is possible before I waste time on it.
|–-Port 1/Vlan 10: Modem in bridge mode
|---Port 2/Vlan 10+20+30: PFsense router
|---Port 3/Vlan 20: Wifi
|---Port 4/Vlan 30: LAN
I want to connect the modem to port 1 set as VLAN 10.
The pfsense box would be connected to port 2 and trunked to VLANs 10,20, and 30.
Port 3 would be connected to a wireless access point.
Port 4 would be set for the LAN interface.
Does any of this make sense or am I just being an idiot?
That looks fine to me. You then configure three VLAN interfaces on pfSense, one for each of the different VLAN IDs.
Its the first time that the entire concept of VLANs actually clicked for me so I am just a bit unsure of what is and isn't possible with them.
