HELP: Which Router supports VLAN ? - I wish two groups cannot communicate with each other.

[ Edited ]

Hi All,

 

I have 5 wireless devices need to connect to the router,

I wish to separate them into 2 groups,

ie, group 1, Device A,B,C, group 2, Device D,E.

I wish two groups cannot communicate with each other.

 

I heard it can be done by VLAN, is e2500 can fit what I need?

how about EA3500 and EA4500?

I am using wireless G, is that mean EA4500 is out of choice even if it support VLAN?

 

Thanks all!

You should review the user manuals for each model or the web site for what features are supported. I know the WRT1900AC has VLAN support features.

Thank you for reply.

 

The problem is, I do check the specification, eg for WRT 1900 AC, by the linksys website.

 

http://www.linksys.com/en-eu/products/routers/WRT1900AC

 

but I cannot find it supports VLAN or not in the website.

 

Could you advise where should I go for it?

 

Thank you!

use the support section to get firmware and manuals

 

Go to Downloads tab

http://support.linksys.com/en-eu/support/routers/WRT1900AC

 

User Guide

http://downloads.linksys.com/downloads/userguide/1224701563187/MAN_WRT1900AC_8820_01656_RevA00_Intl....

 

the manual didnt state either way

But i did find this on google

still not sure just yet if you can define your own or not

from other goolge searches on the topic, it seems like its more related to an isp

There are very few, if at all, consumer home routers that do support them

usually you would need to step up to a small business router

or find one that has custom firmware to do what you want

thanks for the clarification for the OP

 

fwiw

an alternate solution for routers that do not support vlans, to do what you want is this
