Hi all




I have a Technicolor TG589VN V2 modem. Its set up as my router with DHCP off as i have another device hosting the DHCP server.Im now in a position where i need to create a VLAN to separate some wired devices. From what i can see after having a look via telnet what functions lie hidden away,


Under eth>vlan i am able to create one


Under eth>bridge>vlan I'm able to make changes to vlans.


From my understanding based on findings, It should be able to do what I'm after.


But setting that up as i have in mind I'm not sure about.




I want to dedicate 1 port on the router (ethport4) to a new VLAN with its own DHCP server on that port - isolated/separate from the other 3 existing ports on the default VLAN. The goal being that devices on the separate VLANS cannot see/communicate with one another.


If its possible to do so, what is the right way to go about configuring this?

Personally, given what your trying to do i would look at moving into a bridgemode with a decent router to handle all the rest for you.
