VLAN in AP Mode?

Hey,

I want to use the R7000 as an access point only (I already have a router). I am interested in using the guest network and passing it as a over a tagged VLAN to the main router (e.g. I will tag main traffic with 1 or untagged, and tag guest traffic with 2). Is this possible with Genie/Stock Firmware? Or would I have to use DD-WRT, Tomato, etc? Thanks.

You would have to use 3rd party FW for this.

Tomato variants just came out.

DD-WRT is far more mature.

I'm doing it this way with the following configuration:

MAIN ROUTER CONNECTED TO ISP MODEM
LAN IP: 192.168.0.1
SUBNET: 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY: 192.168.0.1

Wireless and all other settings as usual

SECOND ROUTER FOR GUEST ACCESS
ISP / WAN SETTINGS

INTERNET IP ADDRESS 192.168.0.2 or any static unused IP from the MAIN ROUTER
SUBNET 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY 192.168.0.1

==============================

LAN SETTINGS

IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.1
SUBNET 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY 192.168.1.1
ENABLE DHCP and specify DHCP range
==============================

WIRELESS

GUEST SSID
CHANNEL - other than main router
ENABLE WIRELESS ISOLATION if desired

==============================

PLUG CABLE INTO YELLOW WAN PORT
