Newbie to VLAN and advanced networking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have recently upgraded my home network to include some Ubiquiti Unifi equipment after installing some of their hardware on a couple side jobs I recently worked on. I was rather impressed with the ease of use and I liked the web interface that allows you to manage multiple devices within the Unifi network. I went ahead and started with one of the AC PRO WAP's and have had it up and running for a couple months now without any issues at all. I've now decided to scrap my Linksys router and 24port unmanaged switch with a Unifi Secure Gateway router and 24port managed switch.

I would like to start implementing VLAN's within my home network for a number of reasons. Separate traffic from my security cameras and other devices from the rest of my network, and also separate a hyper-v server I am using for home lab testing for certs from the rest of my network so my lab doesn't interfere with the rest of my home network. Below is a list of devices on my network...

1 Motorola SBG6141 Modem
1 Unifi Secured Gateway
1 Unifi 24port Managed Switch
1 PowerEdge T620 Server w/ iDrac port and 4 NIC's running multiple VM's for Blue Iris, Plex, VPN, etc..
1 PowerEdge T20 Server w/ 2 NIC's for lab cert testing. Will likely be spinning up DC, DNS, DHCP, Exchange, etc for training
1 Custom Built Gaming PC
1 HP Z420 Workstation for work related tasks
2 HP mini-PC's for HTPC's in bedrooms connected to TV's for streaming plex
2 Roku Streaming Boxes
2 Smart TV's
1 Xbox One
2 NestCam Security Camera's recording to Blue Iris server (Likely adding 2 more down the road for outside)
2 Mobile Phones
1 iPad
1 Surface Pro
1 LaserJet Printer

I'm basically looking for advice on how to design my network with VLAN's to achieve best performance and also to segregate my home lab from everything else. I purchased the new Unifi Router/Switch and plan to install them this weekend and start reorganizing my network.

Any help would be appreciated!

Still need help with this?

You can either:

Tag subinterfaces on a single port with the usg and trunk to the switch

Use a second interface off of the usg into an untagged vlan on the switch

Set up a /30 routed subnet between the usg and switch, place your gateway IPs on the switch and do layer 3 switching.



#2 would probably be the easiest and allow you to manage those inter vlan security policies between subnets on the usg
