VLAN/IPTV option

I put my untrusted devices on the switch connected to PORT 4 of my router, and then I enabled "VLAN/IPTV" on that port (using "by bridge group" as the option)

 

I was hoping the router would just assign a different subnet via DHCP to these devices, but it's not working.  What am I missing exactly?

 

My goal is to have a part of my network isolated (things like IP camera's) on a separate VLAN to secure the network better.

Hi natv,

 

VLAN/IPTV feature of the router is intended for ISP setup.

Thanks @Case850

 

The https://www.ubnt.com/edgemax/edgerouter-x/ looks interesting indeed.

 

Is it hard to set up, basically I'm fine with a basic setup of having 2 separate LANS, just to isolate them from each other (put untrusted stuff on one). I'm fine with having to set IP addresses statically on the unstrusted vlan so I don't need a DHCP server there.

 

My regular network will be my current Netgear Nighthawk (so that can continue to serve the regular network with wifi / dhcp)

 

Does this idea make sense? Would I just make my regular home network (192.168.2.x) the DMZ to get the netgear take over that side of things?

 

Thanks
