GS105E VLAN & GL-AR150 Mesh Node

Has anyone managed to get the AR150 Mesh Node to work through a VLAN switch ??
I would like to replace my old Bullet Tunnel Node with the AR150.
The GS105E switch is configured exactly as required for Mesh operations.
Port 1 from the AR150 WAN port, and Port 5 to the Internet Modem/Router.
I can see the GS105E switch on the Modem/router side, but the AR150 is not making it through the switch. The Internet Modem does not see the AR150.
Yes we are all on the same sub-net.
I have connected the AR150 directly to the Modem/Router, bypassing the switch and yes it now connects to the Internet ok.
Has anyone experienced this same problem. Is there perhaps an issue with the AR150 vlan configuration ??

Be sure to reference the port

Be sure to reference the port configuration details for devices here:   (scroll down a ways to the port configuraiton section)

For the AR150:

  • Port labeled "WAN": untagged = AREDN WAN
  • Port labeled "LAN": untagged = AREDN LAN, vlan 2 = DtDLink (device to device)

This is different than a 1 port device, vlan 1 is tagged and goes though an 802.1q switch to connect to home network.  This ar150 can be directly plugged in to a home network on the WAN port. It is not using vlan 1 and a switch is not necessary.  (Great for traveling.)    However, note the vlan 2 is functional and the LAN port can go to your switch for LAN and DTDLink to function as expected.

Thanks Joe,
that sure does make it much easier for tunneling.
