Submitted ticket #291412: TL-SG108E 802.1Q VLAN mappings with overlapping VLANs causes all status LED's to flash
When I use this switch with all VLAN modes disabled, the status lights flash independently, i.e. activity between a server and a router on two separate ports doesn't cause the LEDs on other ports flash simultaneously. However, when the 802.1q VLAN mode is enabled with overlapping VLANs (to segregate ports into two networks which both can talk over one port routed to the internet - ie. the two VLANs overlap on that port), the traffic between ports with different PVIDs (e.g. from a server to the internet router) causes the status LEDs of all connected ports to flash.
Is this a hardware limitation or a firmware bug?
