Overview

The GS1900-8 is a fanless 8 port managed switch.

Configuration

Factory Default Admin Username/Password

Note: If AAISP configured the switch then the credentials will be different

Default/Factory Password
IP: 192.168.1.1
Username: admin
Password: 1234

https is enable by default, albeit with a certificate that will give browser warnings


Accessing the switch

  • Set your computer to be on an IP in the subnet that the switch is in, eg, 192.168.1.100/255.255.255.0
  • In your browser, go to http://192.168.1.1
  • Login with the default credentials as above


VLAN config

When using with a FireBrick for bonding multiple lines we can use VLANS for each of the PPP sessions.

We'll configure the switch as:

  • Port 1 - VLAN 101, for ADSL line 1
  • Port 2 - VLAN 102, for ADSL line 2
  • Port 3 - VLAN 103, for ADSL line 3
  • Port 4 - VLAN 104, for ADSL line 4
  • Port 8 is for the FireBrick

Creating the VLANs

  • Click VLAN
    • Create a new VLAN, enter in 101, then Click Next
      • Drag Port01 to the Untagged area
      • Drag Port08 to the tagged area
      • Click Next, then click Finish

This process repeats for VLAN 102, 103, 104 but you use Port02 for VLAN 102, Port03 for VLAN 103, Port04 for VLAN 104... so:

    • From the front page, Click VLAN
    • Create a new VLAN, enter in 102, then Click Next
      • Drag Port02 to the Untagged area
      • Drag Port08 to the tagged area
      • Click Next, then click Finish
  • Click VLAN
    • Create a new VLAN, enter in 103, then Click Next
      • Drag Port03 to the Untagged area
      • Drag Port08 to the tagged area
      • Click Next, then click Finish
  • Click VLAN
    • Create a new VLAN, enter in 104, then Click Next
      • Drag Port04 to the Untagged area
      • Drag Port08 to the tagged area
      • Click Next, then click Finish
