Problem implementing vlans S5720SI Switch

Latest reply: Feb 23, 2016 08:08:53 1542 6 0 0

Hi there ! I have  S5720SI Switch and as already confirmed here in this forum it doesn't support portswitch command. 

I'm planning to do a vlan routing to separate my network and wireless traffic and I don't have any clue how I can improve my network implementing vlans without this feature. 

For instance, I have my general network as my vlan 1 and I wanna separate my wireless traffic in a vlan network as my vlan 10. 
My Access Point does support vlan configuration. 
And I created the vlans and communicated between then with the switch IP as my machine default gateway, but when I tried to connect to the Internet from the new network I couldn't receive any packet back. 
My default gateway to the internet in the network is the ISP router (no access)

How do you guys would do this configuration? 
Is it necessary to include any other device as a router to do this?

Please Guys!
Huawei Experts, is it a bug as well as in the EI model?
This equipment is a great one, I think it can receive the portswitch and start doing some routing too.
It has all the necessary features including great protocols for large and complex networks routing (OSPF, BGP4, etc.)

Thanks in advance.

hi, your topology is   internet-----isp router--------S5720-----AP ? if i am right , you need configure the ISP router that add route item  to  vlan 10  and configure the S5720 and create interface vlan 10.

your ISP must create a route to network to IP assing on vlan1 of S5700 and they need to configure a NAT rules.

Let's assume I don't have any access to the ISP router and they tell me it's out of their policies to concede or create other rules on their equipment.
Would it work sameway if I put a router with nat and routing or a complete L3 switch with those feature right after the router?

Thanks, guys!

You can use a NAT on AP wan port (depends of model) for wireless network. Huawei Switches does not support NAT.
Another way is install a firewall or router between your switch and the ISP router, but you must to change your ip addressing and involve cost.

PS: your ISP can update their config. they already have routing and NAT rule to network.
