Legacy Information

Future Setup

Assuming we get a pfsense box, that can do router-on-a-stick kinda setup (or if one of our switches does routing, great)

ISP VDSL modem → pfsense→ vlans → core switch → [details below]

vlan 1
# General vlan for member devices
# General wireless
# Any untagged traffic

vlan 2
# Space infrastructure
# file servers
# phones
# printers
# isvhsopen box

vlan 3
# Other servers

vlan 101
# Playground. A network with a server (that can run VMware), a (managed) switch, and a wifi access point.

vlan 102
#iot network (possibly on it's own wireless device as well, right now served as a second ssid from cisco wap)

vlan 99
# management interface for network devices

Current Setup

ISP VDSL modem → ddwrt based router → dumb acting switch → 2 Wireless Access points / all the VHS computers

We have the ISP VDSL modem:


Inside the NAT:

Router IP:
WAP1 (2.4 GHz) : (cisco:cisco)
WAP2 (5 GHz) : (cisco:cisco)
Dlink switch : (admin:blank)
DHCP Range: -
