Assigning a VLAN to a LAN Port


#1

As of Firmware 6.3, users can assign a specific VLAN to a LAN Port. Here are the steps to use this feature:

NB: Not all models support per-port VLAN support. See our full model comparison for details.

UPDATE: Per-port VLAN support added for a number of models in firmware 7.1.0:

Balance: 305, 380, 580,710, 1350, 2500
MAX:​ BR1 ENT
MediaFast​: 500, 750

UPDATE 2: Per-port VLAN support has also been added to the MAX Transit en BR1 MK2 in firmware 7.0:

Enable VLAN

  • Go to “Network > Interfaces > LAN”
  • Click the “?” as the screenshot below, then you can click the link to enable the VLAN feature.

  • VLAN is enabled.

Designate Trunk Type and VLAN

Once VLAN has been enabled, navigate to Network > LAN > Port Settings.
To configure a VLAN Trunk, click the pull down menus under the VLAN column to select the desired VLAN.

To configure a port-based VLAN, click the pull down menus under Port Type and select Access before selecting your VLAN.

Does this work on the Surf Soho router too or just some of the Balance routers?


#3

Port base VLAN is available for Surf SOHO.

More models will support Port Base VLAN coming soon for firmware 7. For more information, please refer to the firmware 7 download link & release note:

This seems to work great on Balance 380s and Balance Ones, but I have four Balance 20s that I’m trying to assign Trunk ports with VLAN = “Any” and the option is missing - it only allows me to select tagged VLANs, and not “Any” or the untagged VLAN.

Am I missing something?


#5

Untagged LAN is not available in VLAN Trunk mode with the following models:

Balance 20
Balance 30/30 LTE
Balance 50/50 LTE
MAX BR1 HW1
MAX BR1 Pro HW1
MAX BR1 IP55 HW1
MAX BR2 IP55 HW1
MAX BR2 HW1
Surf SOHO HW1

Custom VLAN is not available in VLAN Trunk mode for:

Balance 305, 380 or above
MediaFast 500/750

Hi Ron -

Can you explain why? This was available in an earlier firmware for the Bal 20, and now it’s not.

We have Peplink devices at 10 sites across the globe, each with one or more Pepwave APs. Now that we want to put our WLAN on VLAN 3, four of my sites can’t see the untagged LAN from Wi-Fi.

I’ve never seen anything with a trunk mode that doesn’t let you trunk untagged traffic…

Thanks.
