VLAN Configuration in GUI (Graphical User Interface)




1.  Log in to the switch thru your internet browser.
2.  Open up the menu tree on the left by selecting "Switching"
3.  Scroll down to "VLAN" and open that up
4.  Select VLAN membership
5.  On the far right hand side select the "add" button
6.  Type in the number of the VLAN you want to create then the descriptive name in the second text box.
7.  Apply changes at the bottom of the page

 

You have now successfully created a VLAN from the GUI interface of the switch.

Applying changes at the bottom of the page does not save to the startup configuration.  Changes will be lost when the switch is rebooted.  To save properly you will need to save the running configuration to the startup configuration.  This can be completed by going to  System/File Management/Copy Files.
