Configuration of Inter-VLAN on RV180 and RV180W
The objective of this document is to guide you on how to configure Inter-VLAN routing and DHCP settings for each VLAN on the RV180 and RV180W. Inter-VLAN routing allows for routing between VLAN connections, which reduces network broadcasts and increases security.
• RV180 • RV180W
Step 1. Log into the web configuration utility and choose Networking > LAN > VLAN Membership. The VLAN Membership page opens:
Step 2. Check Enable in the VLAN field to enable VLAN.
Step 3. Click Add Row to add a new VLAN.
Step 4. In the VLAN ID field, enter a number for the VLAN ID. The VLAN ID is a unique ID that distinguishes one VLAN from another VLAN.
Step 5. In the Description field, enter the description of the VLAN. The description is used to help you identify the VLAN or the purpose of the VLAN. Some examples are "Guest" and "Administrator".
Step 6. Check Enabled for the Inter VLAN Routing check box to enable Inter VLAN Routing.
Step 7. Check Enabled for the Device Management check box to enable Device Management for the VLAN.
Step 8. From each of the Port drop-down lists, choose either Tagged, Untagged, or Excluded.
• Tagged — Identifies network traffic based on which VLAN from which the the traffic originates. This is used when you want the port to connect to network devices such as switches or access points that process traffic from multiple VLANs.
• Untagged — Does not identify traffic based on which VLAN from which the traffic originates. This is used when you want the port to be connected to end hosts such as printers and workstations which do not process traffic from multiple VLANs.
• Excluded — Used when you want to exclude a VLAN from the port.
Step 9. Click Save to save the settings.
Step 10. Choose Networking > LAN > Multiple VLAN Subnets. The Multiple VLAN Subnets page opens:
Step 11. Check the check box for the VLAN ID that you want to edit.
Step 12. Click Edit.
Step 13. In the IP Address field, enter the VLAN subnet IP address for the router.
Step 14. In the Subnet Mask field, enter the subnet mask for the IP address.
Step 15. From the DHCP Mode drop-down list, select None, DHCP Server, or DHCP Relay. If you want to configure a static DHCP, click Configure Static DHCP.
Note: If you chose None, skip to Step 23. If you chose DHCP Server, skip to Step 20. If you chose DHCP Relay, skip to Step 26.
Step 16. Click Add to add a new Static DHCP.
Step 17. In the IP Address field, enter the desired IP address for the device.
Step 18. In the MAC Address field, enter the MAC address of the device.
Step 19. Click Save to save the Static DHCP settings. Skip to Step 29.
Step 20. (Optional) In the Domain Name field, enter the name of the domain.
Step 21. In the Starting IP Address field, enter the first IP address for the desired range of IP addresses.
Step 22. In the Ending IP Address field, enter the last IP address for the desired range of IP addresses.
Step 23. (Optional) In the Primary DNS Server field, enter the IP address of the primary DNS server.
Step 24. (Optional) In the Secondary DNS Server field, enter the IP address of the secondary DNS server.
Step 25. In the Lease Time field, enter the number, in hours, for which the IP addresses will be leased to clients. Skip to Step 27.
Step 26. In the Remote DHCP Server field, enter the IP address of the remote DHCP server.
Step 27. Click Enable for the DNS Proxy check box to enable DNS Proxy.
Step 28. Click Save to save the settings or Cancel to discard the settings.
Step 29. Choose Networking > LAN > DHCP Leased Clients to view the new DHCP leased clients.
