This is written in manual (Netgear series 700 24 port + 2 gbic dual
Main Menu> Advanced> VLANS> VLAN Ports
All untagged packets entering the switch will by default be tagged with the
ID specified by the port's PVID.
This screen allows you to specify the PVID for each port. The number next to
each port indicates which PVID is set for each port.
Following industry standards, PVID 1 is the default PVID.
So you need to set PVID's for all untagged ports. 1-6 have PVID 201
and 7-12 PVID 202. Port 24 is tagged and does not need to have PVID.
This is my first manageable Netgear switch. Usually I use Alliedtelesyn.
