 Subject:  VLANs not really working ?
 Date:  Thu, 03 Jul 2008 22:44:16 +0200

I was using my monowall with 2 LAN cards before, added two access points 
to each LAN, and me and my neighbour were separate users.
I have setup a pipe for 3mbit traffic onto the LAN card of my neighbour.
Now, today I am trying to add an Access Point capable of doing VLAN, and 
have added another SSID onto one of the VLAN's.

So my setup being in the DLINK

SSID : WPA on VLAN 1 (being a generic VLAN)
SSID : WEP on VLAN 8 (being a VLAN with a DHCP

On monowall I have

LAN with DHCP (ip :
VLAN8 with DHCP (ip :

I altered the pipe that now my VLAN8 is limited in traffic (3 mbits), 
but each and every time I change from my WLAN (wpa) to my neighbours (to 
testrun my setup), WEP, I cannot access the internet (now strangely 
enough) completely ???
I can access google, I can send/receive mails, but as soon as I try to 
connect to a site to test my speed (or any other site) it won't connect...

When I do an ipconfig on my computer, I do get the right ip address of 
the corresponding DHCP range... so the VLAN is working, but somewhere 
the routing is messed up (i think)

I can ping however every site (they do resolve, and some of them reply - 
the ones that won't reply, don't reply either on my wlan)...

What might I be doing wrong here ??
