CCNA 2.5.f: Native VLAN


The Native VLAN is used to pass untagged traffic (non-vlan associated) to a neighboring switch


Study Notes:

Native VLAN:

  • On a trunk link, each frame must be distinguishable as being within exactly one VLAN
  • If a frame does not carry an 802.1Q VLAN tag, it is considered to be in the Native VLAN
  • By default the Native VLAN is 1
  • You should change the native vlan to an unused vlan - read about double tagging
