Peplink Balance One and VLANs


#1

Hello

I have a Peplink Balance One, and multiple unmanaged switchs with more than 50 connections under it.

I made 2 VLANs (one for VOIP and another one for workstations).

VOIP 192.168.2.49/24 (VLAN 50)
Workstations 192.168.80.1/24 (VLAN 8)

The problem is, that I do not want to use DHCP and whenever I use a configuration for a workstation as 192.168.80.5/255.255.255.0 under default gw 192.168.80.1, It doesn’t connect.

I found out the problem is that I am not taggin the connection as VLAN 8, and I cannot make a trunk, as I share the swicth with multiple configuration (VOIP/Ws).

So I would like to know if it is possible to tag a VLAN based on NAT configuration (IP Address 192.168.80.1/24 -> tag as 8) or is there any other way, as I cannot make any trunk based on the current situtation.

The only solution I have is to manually tag the WS but that’s not a good procedure.

Thanks

Is it possible to use the native (untagged) LAN for your workstations with 192.168.80.1/24 and only manually tag the phones for VLAN 50? If it is required to have the workstations on a tagged VLAN, you are correct this would require a managed switch when both networks use the same switch. It is not possible to tag a VLAN based on NAT configuration.
