RAX50 VLAN issues


RAX50 VLAN issues

Currently, I am using R9000, and I bought RAX50 so that I can upgrade. When I tried to recreate my VLAN setup from R9000 to RAX50 it didn't work. I am using Pfsense firewall before the Netgear.


  1. RAX50 doesn't have VLAN 0 for internet port. R9000 has VLAN0
  2. Then I created VLAN 10 on my firewall and configured the internet port to VLAN 10, and assigned LAN1-4 and 5Ghz to it. The WAN port received the IP via DHCP, but LAN or 5Ghz won't obtain the IP from DHCP. It's a bizarre situation which I cannot solve

I also created a premium support ticket, but I think they didn't understand the whole problem.
