The switch was a Netgear GS116Ev2. It has basic admin config but I never use them besides for update.What model was the Netgear you previously had? If it wasn't VLAN aware (unmanaged) and the TV equipment is using VLAN tags, the unmanaged switch will happily pass the traffic. The unconfigured ports on the 6450 just default to untagged VLAN 1; if the Freebox packets are VLAN tagged, the switch is either discarding the VLAN tagged packets or honoring them, but has no tagged ports to send them to. Was the Netgear that the TV system was plugged into shared by the rest of your network? Have you also confirmed that the Freebox connected to the TV is pulling the correct IP address to work?
I could be very wrong about what the 6450 is doing though. As this is supplied by your ISP, if their support is worth anything, they might be able to give you some guidance as well.
You can use diagrams.net to draw quick diagrams of how it was before and how it is now.
Yes, it most certainly is. This is a very common thing to do. Setup two ports that way, and your two VLAN 100 devices will be able to talk directly to each other over that VLAN (you shouldn't put anything else in that VLAN or do any other configuration of it).I am still not familiar to what I need to config on the switch, but I am closer to a solution. Is it possible to have a RJ45 port with both VLAN100 (tagged) and standard LAN (untagged) packets ?
It's probably a hardware limitation, in which case you can't use more VLAN tags simultaneously. Do you really have more than 64 VLANs?Sorry, help me please I have ICX6610-48 with Maximum PORT-VLAN entries: 64. I need more vlan, best will be 4095. How I can remove a limit for 64 vlan
Yes I was. With the xb6 in bridgemode the Linksys R8000 does all the routing(which is better) but the R8000 is also the AP for everything wireless in the house and now it is relegated to the basement. The savages are getting restless lol is there any hope with the current hardware to solve the problem or do I have to have another router or add a wireless AP?If you're connecting the switch to the R8000's WAN port in #2 you can't.
That Netgear does appear to have support for VLANs, so either it was configured once upon a time, or it can optionally ignore tags, which wouldn't surprise me on a consumer or 'prosumer' switch. Enterprise switches tend to be far stricter about such things.The switch was a Netgear GS116Ev2. It has basic admin config but I never use them besides for update.
With these hints I seach a little deeper in the freebox config and I found that freebox server and player communicate via VLAN100 (tagged) and they also are visible via the standard LAN (untagged). the freebox player always gets its IP via the freebox server DHCP.

Thanks for the link about the diagram, I will use it.

run "show default values" to see a table of how the default TCAM limits are arranged, I believe on the 6450 you'll get:Sorry, help me please I have ICX6610-48 with Maximum PORT-VLAN entries: 64. I need more vlan, best will be 4095. How I can remove a limit for 64 vlan

For the TV equipment, you don't need to worry about untagged, since the only thing using these ports will be the TV equipment which is applying tags. If you were linking multiple switches and needed to pass multiple VLANs, you can tag one port in multiple VLANs to make a trunk.
If you assign 'dual-mode' on the port where it plugs into the Brocade, it will allow your tagged freebox player on VLAN 100 to communicate, plus the other devices which don't use tags to talk on the default untagged VLAN - assuming that the switch everything is plugged into behind the TV supports VLAN tags. If it doesn't then the switch will need to be replaced with one that does, or a network cable run just for the freebox player.What I did not explicited is that on the TV side there are on RJ45 in the wall and 3 devices behind via a simple switch (tv, freebox player and nvidia shield - so 2 differents networks and a VLAN for the freebox player). this plug then gets into the brocade in the VLAN100 tagged port. I was not able to get the NAS from the shield. It is plugged on the VLAN100 tagged port so that is probably why I can't reach it.
You would potentially have two DHCP servers in the same broadcast domain (VLAN 100) so devices could get the wrong subnet.I have a totally newbie question: if I put all the brocade ports in the VLAN100, with both network (10.11.12.x and 192.168.1.x), will it work ?

I have only one DHCP server on my network, it is on the freebox server for 192.168.1.x network. For 10.11.12.x everything is manually set.You would potentially have two DHCP servers in the same broadcast domain (VLAN 100) so devices could get the wrong subnet.
Use dual-mode as indicated by Lone Wolf so that devices with no tagging get put in the default VLAN.
The freebox server goes into port 15 and the freebox player is behind a switch that goes into port 17. Both in VLAN100. The switch near the TV is a very simple one that let everything pass.Which port goes to your router? That port must also be tagged with VLAN 100 and dual mode
