Hi there, I just upgraded the firmware to 8 and I’ve set up the router, adding a WiFi VLAN.
I don’t normally use WiFi as it’s convenient for me to use Ethernet and more secure feeling for myself.
However, I really want to add Alexa to my traditional hifi amplifier but I don’t want to do it using Bluetooth as I’ve read it’s open to vulnerabilities but mostly because I like the idea of ring fencing components in a VLAN.
This is what I wish to achieve. Have a separate VLAN with SSID and block it off from my PC and Laptop. I wish to have in that VLAN, Amazon Fire Stick, Amazon Echo Dot and Amazon Input connecting WiFi to my HiFi.
I’m sorry if this is a very simple question. I’m very paranoid regarding information ring fencing as I was hacked in the past. If my WiFi does get hacked, I want to make sure there would be no access to my Ethernet components.
I have set up 3 Ethernet VLANs and one 5ghz VLAN, all of them untagged (isolated?). (I don’t seem to be able to make a VLAN of Port 1.)
Thanks for a great router and the free firmware upgrades.
