Cisco Systems has been a key player in networking for over a decade. However, the company’s new vlan set-up is a huge step forward in networking. Using the vlan set-up, you could set up your router to act as a centralized DHCP server, while still keeping the network on your local network. Instead of having to set up each computer on your network separately, you could set up your router as a DHCP server, which would automatically give your computers an IP address.
Cisco is trying to make sure that they’re not the only one doing this, so they’re putting out a set of instructions that will allow vlan set-ups to be implemented in a few other routers. It looks like some routers already have this capability, so that’s a good step forward for them.
Cisco has been doing this for a while now, and its a pretty neat feature. I have a Cisco router, and I use it for a few other things as well. One of those is to set up a DHCP server. That way if one of my computers goes down, I can give my router the IP address of the other computer and it will automatically assign it a new IP address. I also like if I get a new computer.
Configuring a DHCP server is a great way to control the IP address assigned to your router. But you can also use it to set up other things from the settings menus.
Cisco has a nice feature called vlan cisco that allows you to configure the vlan on your network. The vlan is the name of the subnet on which the router is configured. You can configure a vlan by going to the settings menu and choosing your network area. You can then choose your vlan from the drop down menu.
Cisco configures your VLAN on router level, so you will need to configure your router to give each device on your network a unique vlan. That’s pretty straightforward. You just need to go to the router’s settings menu and then select your network area, then your device, and then your vlan.
One of the first things you will want to do is set up the default gateway. This is the device that controls routing to all the devices on your network. I like to use the free vlancisco tool called vlancisco.com. This tool allows you to configure your gateway on your router, which allows you to set the default gateway to the first device on your network that has a vlan defined.
This doesn’t affect IPv6 traffic, only IPv4, of course, so this will be a good place to start. As you can see from the screenshot, I have one eth1, one eth0, and one ipv6-default-route connected to my router.
There’s one more option you should look at: the Ipv6-default-route. This lets you connect to the default route on your router. This probably wont be necessary for most users of your network, but it will be necessary if you have one or two devices that have no default routes in their ipv6 configuration.
This is important because you need to enable the default route on your router to use the IPv6 protocol when it is the default. In order to do this, you need to enable your router’s hardware support for IPv6 on the console. You can do that by going to your router’s settings and going to the IPv6 tab.
