We need better documentation on the set up of VLAN's on the MR60 Nighthawk Mesh Router

I know how to configure VLAN's on Cisco Switches and their documentation is very helpful but, why is there literally about 2 pages worth of useless instructions on the set up of VLAN's for the MR60 Nighthawk Mesh Router? Is there something I'm missing because I've looked all over but can't seem to find more on the subject. I want to implement the use of VLAN's on my home network but I need better explanations such as how are devices added to the VLANs? Does the ID number play a factor? Does the router support Multi-Tenant Unit VLAN? Any guidance is welcomed.

"Set up a bridge for a port group or VLAN tag
group
Some devices, such as an IPTV, cannot function behind the router’s network address
translation (NAT) service or firewall. Based on what your Internet service provider (ISP)
requires, for the device to connect to the ISP’s network directly, you can enable the
bridge between the device and the router’s Internet port or add new VLAN tag groups
to the bridge.
Note: If your ISP provides instructions for how to set up a bridge for IPTV and Internet
service, follow those instruction."

 

I presume is is a WAN side VLAN feature only. I don't think VLAN configurations are supported on the LAN side. You'd need a managed switch with VLAN support to do what your asking.
