Will the network configuration below work?
[ 8-port Managed Switch ]
- VLAN_1: Port 1 = Cable Modem
- VLAN_2: Port 2 = Router WAN
- VLAN_3: Ports 3-8 = Other
Can the router on VLAN_2 broker between the cable modem on VLAN_1 and other wired devices on VLAN_3?
I have an obihai which connects to a phone line and another cable tv device which brokers cable outlet to the cable modem as well as plugs into an ethernet port on the WRT54GL's router switch. The phone line and cable outlets are both next to each other. The problem is that the WRT54GL's signal degrades greatly in that location.
So, currently, I have a WRT54GL doing NAT, DHCP and routing between WAN and the obihai and cable tv device as well as an RT-AC68U wireless router which is connected via a powerline to a central part of the home and configured as a client bridge which all wireless (and other wired) clients connect to.
