Patch the Netgear in and add all VLANs to that port.

Are you sure you need all VLANs extended to the router? Generally that has a number of downsides, depending on your switch configuration.

Hi,

I actually only need about 8 VLAN`s to go through from the Netgear to the HP Switch. I wasn`t sure if i had to setup a LAG or not, i presume a normal trunk would suffice?

In HP terminology, a "trunk" is a LAG. You only need a Trunk if you have multiple physical links.

You need to add all 8 VLANs to the uplink port on the HP switch.

ok thats`s great..

 

So where the port that will be the uplink is currently configured as `mesh` do i just need to remove it from the mesh and then set the port to tagged then add the vlans to it?
