How to configure vlan in Mikrotik smart switches?

To configure the VLAN in Mikrotik smart switches, all ports that are VLAN must be switched to bridge mode first. If our switch is connected to another device like a router, we will need to use this port as a trunk.

Now it is time to configure our VLAN and for this, we click the switch button from the menu on the left side for my Mikrotik device. In the window that opens, we first create the VLAN that we want to create and we select that port, whichever ether port we want to pass this vena, of course, we add it to the trunk port.

If we want to see which VLAN passes through the trunk port here, we put that VLAN on this port.

Eg. Vlan Tag

Then we choose which VLAN trans in which ether we want to pass, here we choose. In short, the ports to be defined as Access.

As the last step, we make the necessary settings to drop requests that come out of the VLAN definition in the switch setting menu.

In the end, we create a management villa because the requests from the switch VLAN are dropped. We also provide an address to reach this villa via IP address.
