I have three layer 2 swtiches, and 2 layer 3 switches.
g40 on layer 3 switch (which is used to talk to a Layer2 dell switch). Is currently set up as an access port. I have a series of access points that I just switched out that allow for guest vlan tagging. I want that port to be able to access more then just one vlan Right now it's simply vlan1, (our main network traffic). I want to make it vlan 20 as well in theory for guests, to do that I need to make it a trunk to handle multiple vlans. (I'm sure I can do that on the cisco switch, but I don't think i can do that on the l2 dell switch).
my questions are 1. (can layer 2 switches be set up as trunks as well, and 2. do I have to set both ends of the trunk as a trunk, or simply one end?).
Given my problem If it's not possible to set it up as a trunk to allow multiple vlans, would it be best to patch those access points into a l3 switch and make the new ports that they get plugged into trunk ports? (my switches are not POE, ). My AP's are, but they have separate poe injectors via ubiquity).
