I am looking for some feed back on a networking problem. I have a cisco switch in one city that is connected to exalt microwave gear that gear is connected wirelessly to another tower about 40 miles a way and goes into another cisco switch. There are many VLANS that pass over this microwave network for different purposes. VLAN 1 has a defined subnet while VLAN 211 does not. One of the switch's had its IP address accidentally changed on VLAN 211. VLAN 211 is tagged.
I am trying to regain access to it remotely by using a computer that is connected to the switch I can still talk to. I set the computer to have an alternate IP that is on the same subnet of the switch I am trying to gain access to. I made sure the port that computer is connected to has tagged VLAN 211. The microwave radios have VLANS disabled so they will pass any traffic and any VLAN.
I am still unable to ping the other switch and am looking for suggestions...
