I have a Peplink Balance 20 with (currently) one WAN connection and one big happy LAN. I need to create a separate LAN to host a network for my neighbor (long story), and I want to keep that LAN completely separated from my LAN. I’d be grateful for some step-by-step help in getting this setup. I’m assuming that VLANs are what I need to set up, but I’ve not done this before, so I’m unsure of what needs to be done. (I.e., do I need to do something to my current unnamed/untagged LAN before I create a named/tagged VLAN)?
Here’s a basic network diagram of what I have:
[current LAN switch] -------- LAN Port 0 [Balance 20] WAN 0 -------- [cable modem] --- ( ISP ) | (( my LAN clients ))
And here’s the change I want to make:
(( my neighbor's LAN clients )) | LAN Port 1 [current LAN switch] -------- LAN Port 0 [Balance 20] WAN 0 -------- [cable modem] --- ( ISP ) | (( my LAN clients ))
Is it as simple as turning off Inter-VLAN routing on my existing LAN, and creating a second (tagged) VLAN that also has Inter-VLAN routing turned off?
When a new device appears on my network, and asks for a DHCP-assigned address, what determines which VLAN’s DHCP server will respond?
