Hi guys, I was just interested whether you know of a device that could look e.g. like a standard RJ45 female-female extension, but would add a predefined VLAN tag in one direction.
I have an unmanaged switch with 802.1Q support, and because of space and temperature constraints (it has to be inside a robot body), I cannot afford putting there some normal managed switch. And industrial-grade managed switches are too bulky (if you know of a small 5+ port managed switch which can operate reliably in 65°C, let me know).
Now, I’d like to add a VLAN tag to one device’s output. My idea was that it should be a pretty simple operation (adding a few bytes before and after each packet). And thus I’d expect there could be a small device out there doing just this. But my google-fu was unsuccessful…
Thanks for any tips
