I can't help, but damn that's overpriced.

 

You could've got an EdgeRouter 4 and a Unifi nanoHD for less and would perform considerably better.

If it is the same as other ASUS router, have a look at https://www.pbtech.co.nz/ASUSISPSettings#SparkRTAC

IPTV is an obvious place to put vlan settings on /s

 

I was looking at the GT-AC5300 manual trying to find any mention of vlans, and there isn't..

I checked it, mine has additional setting which is "IPTV/VoIP Port settings" with option values "LAN1/LAN2" and "LAN5/LAN6", I don't know what's value, plus why it something to do with IPTV, I don't have it

Hi cant see it anywhere in the Manual, if anywhere it will be Advanced Settings > WAN > Internet Connection.

I thought about this option and it does not work for me.

I'm going to ask... Why not? It is a vastly superior option.

 

As I've said multiple times over - consumer grade routers are a total ripoff. This router will not perform any better than a $20 Huawei HG659 from Trademe (and yes, I'm serious) for internet routing. The numbers are pure marketing and so are the features in this case... You've been sucked in to pretty-much a scam.

 

If I were you - I'd return the router and go with a proper, cheaper solution. Look at getting the Grandstream GWN7000 + a Grandstream GWN7610 for over half the price you paid for this router - it'll perform far better in both wireless coverage and general performance and offers all the features of this router (apart from the Gamer crap but this will honestly do nothing).

 

There is also a router guide in my signature.

I'm not sure if this will help as I only have the DSL-AC52U, but for some crazy reason on mine VLAN ID was under LAN > IPTV

Will try to explain

 

Already in used 6 ethernet ports, which means if I go lower router I have to buy a switch and not just a switch but 4-4POE switch.

 

Downstairs Wireless is weak, need a AP, thats good no problem, then, I have to lay a cable with POE, and the best way to lay a cable is outside the house, which means I have to buy at least 15m outside ethernet cable, without ethernet connectors, we dont want to drill 10-15mm holes, just 3-4mm, plus we need 2 wall ethener plates for cable connect/disconnect, for this kind of job we need a master, meaning paying for job. So thats why I went with this router, may be not the best option, but less headache.

I don't think you've justified it and have instead just rushed into it.

 

Switches are cheap - $30 gets you a 8pt Gigabit switch which will be fine for the job. If you were to get a UniFi or one of the Grandstream access points you'll just need a PoE injector which are around $20 to buy. The wireless on those access points is quite superior than this router can offer (serious here). A Grandstream GWN7610 can cover a 2 story moderate sized house no problems in my testing.

 

All up - at a cost about half what you paid for a better product. Your current product is currently causing you headaches with configuration and the thing is going forward support won't be quite the same as enterprise grade or small business kit which get updated with new features all the time. Also, these solutions will look nicer than a massive router with multiple antennas poking out.

 

Furthermore. The UniFi kit can mesh if required if you were to go towards that. Has a far nicer interface, is easy to configure and just works and would be cheaper overall. There are also other solutions such as the Uniquiti AmpliFi which is not only a better and cheaper product but combined with a $30 switch would achieve a better result.

 

Just saying, you really did get ripped off here in a pretty major way and have not put too much thought into this.

They call IPTV in some routers but just because in some regions ISPs use VLAN ID for IPTV streaming.

 

How do you connect the router to the Internet? A dedicated WAN port or use LAN1?

Sorry, went to bed. WAN. I used default value for this setting "LAN1/LAN2", connected my devices to these ports and looks to me it works.
