A VLAN is a group of ports that can be anywhere in the network, but communicate as though they were in the same area.
VLANs can be easily organized to reflect department groups (such as R&D, Marketing), usage groups (such as e-mail), or multicast groups (multimedia applications such as video conferencing), and therefore help to simplify network management by allowing users to move devices to a new VLAN without having to change any physical connections.
The IEEE VLAN Configuration page provides powerful VID management functions. The original settings have the VID as 01, named “default”, and all ports as “Untagged”.
Rename: Click to rename the VLAN group.
Delete VID: Click to delete the VLAN group.
Add New VID: Click to create a new VID group, assigning ports from 01 to 28 as Untag, Tag, or Not Member:A port can be untagged in only one VID. To save the VID group, press Apply.You may change the name accordingly to the desired groups, such as the aforementioned R&D, Marketing,email, etc.
