Try this test first:

run tcpdump -i eth0 [other tcpdump options you use] vlan

use the option "vlan" as your ONLY filter option, or "vlan and host
x.x.x.x" where host x.x.x.x is the ip address of a vlan'd host you want to
grab traffic from. Tell us if you see traffic on the interface. If this
works, you can give snort a BPF filter to sniff vlan and non-vlan tagged
