Nighthawk and SmartThings VLAN

Hello, I want to setup a VLAN on my NightHawk for a SmartThings hub so none of my IOT devices can communicate with anything on the wireless or wired LAN ports.  Anyone know how to do that?  Thank you!

VLANs are not supported by stock firmware

Thank you but there's a tab that even says VLAN in the settings.  Those aren't VLANs?

Those are used for Internet connections. They're not full-blown VLAN setup configurations

Got it, thank you!  So I'll need to plug in another device between the NightHawk and the SmartThings Hub to establish a VLAN?  Any suggestions on something cheap, simple and secure?  I really want my IOT devices to have the most minimal of connections to my network.  Thank you for your help!

Re: Nighthawk and SmartThings VLAN

Your router needs VLAN support. Placing a cheap managed switch with VLANs support, for example, won't do it. If your router is supported by DD-WRT or FreshTomato, you can try those firmwares. I've set up on Tomato VLANs in the past for the Guest network so I know it works
