VLANs on Nighthawk Routers

Is it possible to setup VLANs within the OS of the XR500?  Ideally create two networks that are truly separate from each other where devices on each cannot see or access each other.  I see there is a VLAN/bridge but does that mean the only way you can have a VLAN also enables a bridge?  If that is the case I assume it will bypass the NAT, which someone may not want.  Or mabe it is possible to have a VLAN without a bridge, therefore utilizing the NAT.  If anyone has done this please let me know.  Also any documentation is helpful.  Cheers!

Also assuming you do this QoS may not run effectively as we've discovered there may be a bug there that needs fixing.

Re: VLANs on Nighthawk Routers

A reason to have a VLAN or even separate network is for IoT devices.  Has anyone accomplished this config ?

Re: VLANs on Nighthawk Routers

Considering purchasing the XR500.  For anyone that has setup a guest network, are you able to tell me what internal IP it provides?  Can this be changed and is it truly isolated from your main?

Re: VLANs on Nighthawk Routers

The internal IP would be one in your existing DHCP range. There is no way to specifically change it for guest network. Guest network will only be able to access the internet or if you choose, anything on the local network as well. They won't be able to access the interface.
