I'm trying to set up separate VLAN's on a new Netgear FS728FPv2 switch. I've never configured VLAN's before.
The switch works fine with the default config, with every port as UNTAGGED at VLAN 1 (default).
I have two fixed-IP devices on the same subnet (my PC and a router, DHCP turned off) for my tests, connected on ports 3 and 5. They communicate correctly.
Now I remove one of these ports from VLAN 1, and the devices stop talking, as expected. Then I also remove the other port from VLAN 1.
But then I add both ports as UNTAGGED to a new VLAN 3, and I expected the devices to start talking again (on their own "private" VLAN), but instead I can't seem to get any traffic through.
Do I need any other configuration in the switch? What could I be doing wrong?
In my intended configuration, every port will be part of a single VLAN. I just mean to use the 28-port switch as if it were 4 independent 8-port switches, no routing, no trunking. Do I need to go into configuring PVID's for this?
