Although many of the consumer-grade routers support a "guest" networkfor WiFi, I don't see many of them out there that support traditional VLANS.An inexpensive option would be to get a Ubiquity EdgeRouter …I have GS1900-48's at work, and a GS1900-16, and GS1900-8HP at home,and so far, they have been solid performers.Granted, the GS1900 series doesn't offer a plethoraof options, li…I work in a GS1900 environment, so it's a little different for me.If you're interconnecting two network switches, and simply trying tocarry multiple VLANS across them, then just set up ea…You didn't really say how many ports you needed. . . .These days, I wouldn't even mess with a switch with 10/100 ports,unless you're buying something used.Do you have actual equipment at the addresses listed above?If it were just a few addresses, I'd suspect some sort ofleft-overs from networked printers or file shares.I meant to ask you about something you mentioned early on. . .Where did you read that it was better to have static IP addresses on the phones,versus using DHCP to assign the IP addresses to the phones?
On our switch at work, we have the Voice/VLAN/QOS settings as follows -
Some preliminary questions -1.) Is the voice quality bad all of the time,or does it get worse with network activity?2.) The NEC phone system - where are your…Hmmm. "Set DNS directly". . . on the PC's?I was under the impression that the PC's were on VLAN1,and were already working correctly.It looks like you should be able to create a DNS server serviceon the FortiGate, and then assign the listen-on interface to be"VLAN for Voice"Then, you should be able to manually set your VLAN2 …Gotcha.Yeah, I had forgotten that you said that your network usesexternal DNS servers directly.I think what that means is that (on VLAN1),your DHCP server is probably…Just for clarification -Are you saying that DNS doesn't work at all,or are you saying that it doesn't work on VLAN2 ?If it is just VLAN2 that isn'…If you are placing your IP phones onto a different VLAN/subnetfrom the rest of your office equipment, it is best to have the phone controlleron that same VLAN/subnet to facilitate communication.
Alrighty. . . let's see. . .If you only have a handful of IP Phones, then perhapsthe static IP method that you mentioned might be easierthan trying to mess with DHCP options, etc.Let's see. . .3.) Voice signalling policy - This was needed for Mitel IP phones.I don't know if your IP phones need that functionality or not.In layman's…
