Hi, In the "Fiber To The Premises" thread there is a discussion on how to replace the Sasktel Actiontec router. It's a bit pricey solution as a managed switch is required which costs about $200.00. Well, I just came across one that cost me $25.00 when I bought a used Linksys E2500 wireless router on Kijiji. After upgrading to latest firmware (1.0.07) I noticed that it had Vlan support. I checked Linsys release notes and sure enough Vlan configuration support was implemented in this firmware, great, awsome. This was really surprising as this is not a high end router. I set the WAN port on E2500 to Vlan 1000, connected this port directly to Sasktel ONT (no managed switch), connected a test PC to the Lan port and Bingo, E2500 was pulled a public IP and I had Internet access on the Test PC.
Hopefully someone finds this info usefull, also hopefully if someone else finds another router with Vlan support they will post it here.
I'm using an Asus RT-N56U router. I have custom firmware from http://code.google.com/p/rt-n56u/downloads/list that supports vlan. I'm not sure if the stock firmware supports it or not. I just went to the WAN settings, enabled VLAN tagged traffic filter and set VLAN Internet VID to 1000 and plugged into the WAN port of the router and it works fine. I have yet to play with getting my SaskTel Max to work, but I don't imagine that will be too difficult.
Looking forward to having infiNET in my place this fall...like bobcat7, I'm wondering the benefits of replacing the Actiontec device?
I'm pretty sure my Linksys router has an appropriate VLAN setting I can set up at some point.
