Can someone advise me or direct me to the proper setup for putting my GS1200 switch between my router and modem?  I want to do it this way so I can port mirror all of my network traffic.    When I set up my VLAN for the switch I can no longer access the switch.  Not sure what I am doing wrong.  thanks!!!

    What is the firmware version of your switch?
    Is possible to share your network topology, screenshot of VLAN setting and where is the connection of your control device?

    I checked GS1200-8's release note, only VLAN 1 can manage/access switch's web interface.
    Please make sure your VLAN setting.

    Well that is helpful I think.  Seems to be working now although I don't really understand how it can be working.  

    So what I now have is...

    VLAN  1-  Port 4 untag (green),  other ports disabled (grey)
    VLAN 2 - Port 4 disabled (grey), other ports untagged (green)

    PVID setup is  2 2 2 1 2 2  2  Port 4 is VLAN 1 others VLAN 2.

    Port 2 is mirrored both directions, Port 3 is my monitor port (will be used for a raspberry pi IDS).

    My fiber modem (called a PON) is plugged in to switch port 1.  My Linksys router is plugged into switch port 2.  My switch port 4 is plugged into router.

    So I don't really understand how my router can route with a switch before it.

    I am interested in additional thoughts or comments.
