Just received my GL-MT6000, and performing its initial setup. I’m looking to replace my old EdgeRouter with this - but running into a few questions:
I’d like to bond - (4) LAN Interfaces as a LACP / Ether-channel to my Cisco Switch, with a few VLANs.
What’s the best way to do this? Can I run multiple DHCP scopes - one for each of my VLANs?
Thanks in advance!
You could try this one
Any good guides on LACP that are more up to date? - Network and Wireless Configuration - OpenWrt Forum but I would assume it will break features of the GL GUI. So I would not recommend it.
I’ll give it a read. Much appreciated!
My alternative would be to use 2.5g switch - and use that for the LACP back to my Cisco switch… but that seems a bit silly.
Any suggestions/feedback on the other questions re: VLAN Tagging / multiple DHCP Scopes? Would that break anything or make firmware upgrades challenging?
Yep and yep.
It might break GUI parts and when you update your firmware it will revert (some/all) changes. So … hm … I am not quite sure if it’s a good way to go Maybe you want to go with plain OpenWrt only. ( See download here - but please make sure you read and understand everything before doing so.)
Installing and Using OpenWrt
Network and Wireless Configuration
I have exactly that configuration (three extra VLANs), each with it's own DHCP configuration, all configured through the GUI, and it works well. Here is what I did: In 'Network/Switch', I created a new VLAN with ID 3. I set all of the switch...
Seems to solve your question.
