    Default VLAN Setup

    Hi everyone I am new to Untangle and I am having a bit of a hard time setting up VLAN's. I understand the process but with Untangle I need some help with the settings. I think i'm missing something.

    ...to Untangle and the forums!

    I am sorry to hear that, but we need to know a lot more about your setup than that. I don't have time for twenty questions this morning.
    Someone else will need to pick this one up.
    If you think I got Grumpy

    Yes, I purchased a pair of surprisingly inexpensive Netgear ProSAFE Plus managed switches to experiment with this and learn on my home network.

    I think that the Untangle side of things is easy to configure. The unusual part to grok is that you are creating new virtual interfaces w/tags on a physical interface.
    Whereas, on a switch you are basically putting a tag on each physical interface.

    This means that with NGFW, you are generally going to start out with VLAN trunking. To get that to my Unifi AP (also doing trunking) is going to take some tinkering on the switch.

    This isn't hard, it's just having to begin with a more advanced topic, and having a good plan going into it.

    Perhaps the O.P. can give us a sketch of your network layout?

    here is an example of a NetGear switch VLAN config.

    T is trunked VLAN going to the Untangle parent VLAN NIC. (port 1)
