About the VLAN part, I think I still don't quite understand how VLAN works.
Though not related, maybe this can help for someone to explain the workings of a VLAN. Found this on HWZ
Someone did this for a managed switch for SNBB Fibre.
Port 1 Trunk, to ONT, VLAN 10,20,30,40 all tagged
Port 2 VLAN 10, to own router WAN, untagged
Port 3 Trunk, to 2Wire WAN, VLAN 20,30,40 all tagged
default vlan 1 disabled for above ports
rest of ports on vlan 1 untagged for extending own router's LAN ports
My first question is what is the difference between tagged and untagged?
Second question is based on the description above, does a port have VLAN setting for incoming and outgoing (eg. like Port 2, incoming is tagged to VLAN 2 and outgoing is not tagged)?
My third question is how does a normal device without VLAN capability co-exist in a VLAN network (Does it mean that untagged means free for all non-VLAN device)?
My fourth question is my configuring the rest of his ports on VLAN 1 will allow the ports to function like a cascaded switch to that of his router?
Thanks once again for the effort!
*Anyway, adding the registry key does not work as well. Worst case is for me to look at some managed switch.
