  • Intra-VLAN visibility GS724T switches
    I have been asking and researching this VLAN issue for some time on this forum and elsewhere. I have configured my test network as shown in the attachment.

    1. I can see from VLAN 5 out to the Internet no problem.
    2. Any device outside VLAN 5 cannot be seen from outside the VLAN 5 and vice versa - that is fine also

    PROBLEM: I cannot see from VLAN 5 on 1 switch to VLAN 5 on another switch.

    I have not configured any Inter VLAN routing and would prefer not to do so. When I...
  • Need help setting up a separate WiFi behind VPN for Roku/Netflix but regular WiFi for the rest
    Here's my situation - I have the ASUS N66U router running Merlin. I also have PIA setup. I've found that PIA slows down my connection tremendously when it's on, so as a solution, it'd be great to enable it only on one of the WiFi networks and use that for Roku etc, while still having a non-VPN connection for everything else. Is there a way to do this?

    Hi guys,

    I am not sure if this is the right discussion to post and ask for a VPN recommendation so kindly direct me to the right link if I'm wrong. I've been using Cyberghost for months now and still can't decide to get the paid membership as I'm always looking for a good VPN provider. Recently, I've stumbled upon another VPN website VPNWise www.vpn-wise.com and I really like the look of the website and found it interesting. It says it can unblock blocked websites especially streaming...
