Hi, I have set up a few routers and Digital DVR’s but trying to get more secure and set up multi lans on SOHO Surf. I have set up my SURF with Several VLANs. My intention is to keep the home computers using ethernet separated from our DVR system and the TV Network. I also set up 2 Wireless Lans For home and guest use. Keeping things Isolated on different VLANs but keep devices that need to communicate on the same VLAN
I cant get the the Tivo and Tivo Mini both to be assigned IP addresses. Im not really sure how to get each LAN to properly assign the devices as I wish. So I only enabled the Tivo Lan’s DCHP server and turning the others off. Figuring the Tivos would get assigned IPs to the proper Lan. Only one will get an IP assignment for some reason. The last one to be connected shows up in the Client List, but the previous one disappears for some reason - even though they are both still connected. I tried switching the port for the tivo plugged directly into the SURF from Trunk to Access and back again with no luck.
The other Tivo (mini) is connected to the Surf via an 8 port switch via a port set to Untagged and Trunk. Should I change the SURF port going to the Switch to see all my wired networks? I had it set to Untagged (House) + TV . If so, Trunk or Acess - and most importantly, if I link the switch port on the surf to all my wired LANs, is bad security - defeating the reason for separating all the LANs in the first place? Can anyone shed any light? Thanks!!!
