I have been out of the loop some with my Cisco studies. I received my CCENT last April, and then went on and off on studying for ICND2. I am now starting to get back into things, and figure I would give myself a test, and I am stuck
In 3 weeks I will be heading out to Texas Motor Speedway and doing an IP schema change. Also while I am out there I will be adding a vlan to separate part of the network that is not ours. I figure before I went I would practice it on Packet Tracer. So I have a few 2960 switches, and a router. Obviously I am going to have A LOT more than that, but figure I would just a small scale version
Well I separated 2 of the switches and moved them to a vlan 200. The network for vlan 200 is: 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0
The other switches are going to be vlan1. The network for vlan 1 is: 10.10.60.0 255.255.248.0
This is not going to be the real IP schema, but something along these line.
If I am on the "other" person switch, I can't ping the other vlan 200 switch, and no idea why.
However if I am on any of the vlan 1 swtiches, I can ping any on vlan 1 just fine. Yes I know that works cause its the default vlan.
Anyone want to show me what I am missing? It has to be something little and simple.
Something like this
switchport vlan access 100
description to router
description to switch B
encapsulation dot1q 100
ip address 10.100.0.1 255.255.255.0
encapsulation dot1q 200
ip address 10.200.0.1 255.255.255.0
Actually my packet lab is wrong. I need to remove that router and add a 3750 layer 3 switch.
For some reason in my head I was thinking since I was only working on one side of the router that everything was in the same braodcast. I forgot that vlans are their own BS (Broadcast/Subnets)
I will take the router our tomorrow and put in a layer 3 switch and configure and I should be set. Guess it won't be too hard to separate the network when I get out there
