Okay I am just starting out thinking about VLANS and google brought me here LOL.
I see that there are two places to create VLANS. The Interface menu selection and the Bridge menu selection.
Disclaimer, I prefer winbox. ( no external access, just internal
The interface selection seems most like my older router zyxel USG40 whereas the Bridge one looks more like switch settings???
My setup is basic.
HOMEBRIDGE - LAN1
DMZBRIDGE - LAN2
ether1- secondary ISP
Assume I have managed switches.
Assume I have vlan capable APs (seeing as they work now, need to get me some hAP-ac2s)
ON my zyxel40, I would create a new VLAN, complete with IP address and DHCP Serving etc but one step was identifying which was my host (Symbiotic) network the VLAN would piggyback on.
In other words a VLAN has to travel within an existing network. I am not sure how to do this on hex??????
Example Lets say I want
Normal LAN traffic for the wired house and use VLANS to partition off everything else.
vlan10 192.168.10.0/24 android boxes, appletv etc.....
vlan20 192.168.20.0/24 guest wifi
vlan30 18.104.22.168./24 house wifi
I want to run VLAN10 and VLAN20 off of LAN2 - DMZ bridge
I want to run VLAN 30 off of LAN1 - Homebridge
I want to forward block appropriately so will need
vlan10 TO vlan 20, vlan 30, LAN1, LAN2 : DROP
vlan20 TO vlan10, vlan 30, LAN1, LAN2 : DROP
I want to ensure VLAN30 to LAN1 traffic and LAN1 to VLAN30 traffic works easily.
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)
