How to create VLAN

Hello All! I am new to networking with meraki equipment (MS225-48FP) and was wondering how do you create a VLAN with these switches? The UI changed on our portal and I cannot find a guide to save my life. I am new to creating VLANs to begin with (this will be the first one I create outside of school). I have created a case to see if they would be willing to assist me in doing this but I thought I would reach out to the community as well 🙂

Kind of a big deal

In Meraki, you don't need to create vlans for the switch to pass or tag vlan traffic. The switch has all vlans available by default.


You can however create a Vlan interface under Switch -> Routing & DHCP.

The vlan interface is used to allow routing to devices on the vlan.


A few docs that might help:

You just add them in the switch port configuration.  If you want a trunk you choose the native VLAN and all allowed tagged VLANs.  You can choose all or individual or ranges like: 10-20,31 If you make it access port you can choose the access VLAN and a voice VLAN that will work with CDP/LLDP devices.


At default every port is a trunk with native VLAN 1 and all VLANs allowed.


If you intend to route between VLANs then see this next:

What are you using as the gateway fore the VLAN?
