By clicking on this button, a configuration wizard will seem by way of the net to create the community step-by-step simply and rapidly. What it’s going to ask us is the next:
- community title: we’ve to point a reputation of the native community.
- native IP: we put the primary IP tackle of the subnet that we wish to create. For instance, if we put 192.168.10.1 it’s going to create a brand new community with subnet 192.168.10.0/24
- Subnet masks: in precept we must always select /24, though we will additionally select different subnet masks.
- Enable administration of Synology Router by way of this community: This selection permits us to enter the router to the gadgets related to this community. If we’re going to use this community for friends or a use that doesn’t require entry to the router, we uncheck this configuration choice.
- Allow community isolation: This new community will probably be blocked from speaking with the opposite networks, together with the principle community and the opposite visitor community. In some instances we could wish to have inter-vlan communication, and in different instances we could not. We should assess whether or not or not we wish communication.
Within the following photograph you might have the configuration made by us:
Within the following menu we will assign an Ethernet port to the RedesZone community. This port that we configure will probably be “untagged”, that’s, the gear that we hook up with this port will mechanically hook up with the brand new community created. We have now the opportunity of selecting a number of ports to hook up with this community, however we should take one thing under consideration: on the identical port we can’t have two VLAN IDs as untagged. If we wish this LAN port 4 to even have a connection to the principle community, it isn’t potential.
The configuration wizard may even permit us to create a WiFi community with the SSID and password that we wish, all wi-fi shoppers related to this SSID will mechanically be within the new community with VLAN ID 10 created.
Lastly, we’ll get a abstract of all of the configuration carried out, the place we will see the title of the configured community, the IP, masks, VLAN ID and likewise if we’ve assigned an Ethernet port to this community.
If we click on on “Apply”, we wait a number of seconds and we can have the brand new community created with all of the settings made.
As you may see, creating a brand new community with a particular VLAN ID could be very easy with this Synology RT6600ax router. Usually these options are solely obtainable on skilled routers, not on a house or SOHO router.
Superior settings of the brand new community
If you wish to entry the superior settings of the brand new community, and even edit the settings made beforehand within the configuration wizard, it is possible for you to to take action with out issues in the principle menu of «Community Heart / Native Community / Community». Right here we should select the community that we wish, after which click on on “Edit”, in order that the precise menus seem to edit the configuration.
On this menu we will edit all of the configurations that we’ve beforehand made within the configuration wizard, corresponding to what is said to the community title, native IP, masks, VLAN ID, if we wish to permit or not entry to the router and likewise if we wish to activate or disable isolation. In case you wish to configure the Ethernet port intimately, additionally, you will be capable of configure it from right here to alter it or add extra ports. After all, we will additionally configure the WiFi community with the SSID and password, in addition to the DHCP server for IPv4 networks and likewise for IPv6. Lastly, within the “Superior” menu we will activate or not the NAT, the UPnP and even the IGMP Snooping to appropriately handle the Multicast visitors.
Within the case of desirous to see intimately how the totally different ports would search for the WAN and LAN by way of VLANs, we’ve to click on on the “VLAN Tag” choice. By clicking right here, we will see which networks are untagged and tagged. Synology will put the brand new networks as tagged on all LAN ports, and as untagged solely on the community that we wish.
In we click on on “Configure trunk port” we’ve the opportunity of configuring or not the trunk port of the gear, by default all ports are in trunk mode plus the community that we wish in untagged mode. If we wish to take away the tagged VLANs from the ports, we merely must deselect the corresponding port.
If we join a tool by way of cable to LAN port 4 that we’ve configured earlier than as VLAN ID 10 untagged, we can see that it obtains IP addressing with out issues, and it’s assigned to the “RedesZone” community and we even have an IP tackle of the 192.168 subnet .10.0/24, that’s, the one we’ve beforehand configured.
That’s how simple it’s to arrange a brand new community and configure the VLANs within the LAN on the Synology RT6600ax router, an important function to separate the subnets and never have safety issues. For instance, we will create a particular subnet for the friends (which is already created by default), in addition to one other community for all of the IoT dwelling automation gadgets in our dwelling, and in the principle community solely join our foremost gear corresponding to laptops, mobiles and tablets. , and each the Sensible TV, IP cameras and different gear to the brand new community that we’ve configured.
