Gerald, I have reverted everything back to factory defaults so I can start over. Here's what I am going to do and where I need help. Default VLAN will be 1. SIP VLAN will be 10. PC VLAN will be 20. I have everything setup on a separate switch from my regular network so I can get this working before migrating from the old switch to the new switch. There is no DHCP server, and for this test, everything will be hardcoded to be on the same subnet. It is also my understanding that there's a way to put each VLAN on it's own subnet and further segment the traffic. 1) Create VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 in Linksys switch. 2) Configure phone for LAN port to be on VLAN 10 and PC Port to be on VLAN 20. Now once I do this, I have to configure the switch. This is where i'm lost because I can't ever get it to work. I'm trying to determine if i've got the wrong hardware to support this. I thought with this switch that I wouldn't need a router on every VLAN and that the switch would relay traffic between VLANS as needed based on whose on what port and their IP and their VLAN.

I can't for the life of me get this figured out. I would like to setup a PC VLAN (10), a SIP VLAN (20), a SERVER VLAN (30), in addition to the default VLAN 1 that's built into the switch. I've read every article on here I can find and can not get anything to work. I have Aastra IP Phones that I setup with a VLAN ID of 20 for their LAN Port, and a VLAN ID of 10 for their PC Port. The computer is daisy chained through the phone which plugs directly into the POE switch. Once I save that configuration I lose all contact with the phones and they can no longer reach the DHCP server for example, nor their IP Phone server. I've tried every combination of Trunk and General and I haven't seen anything that is specific for my switch and that seems to work. Can someone give me some insight into the steps I need to take because from all i've read I had it configured correctly but nothing worked. I am ready to start from scratch if someone can lend me a hand. Thanks!
