Correct, VLAN 35 is the WAN and VLAN 34 is IPTV. If you replace the Actiontec then the internal LAN data VLAN number doesn't really matter. I'm currently using three different data VLAN's (36, 37 and 38).Couple of comments, what is VLAN 36 used for?? My understanding is that VLAN 35 is internet and VLAN 34 is IPTV. If the managed switch I find can actually tag data packets going out of the switch on VLAN 34, then the router should not have anything else to do except continue the VLAN 34 routing out to the internet to the ISP. In other words no QoS settings are required on the router.
On a different sidebar, I do note my router has DiffServ capabilities and it uses something called ToS and DSCP marking to modify data packets. I am investigating if that can be used for the 802.1p tagging, that File has pointed out needs to be done (and for which many switches are unable to do). If this is the case then perhaps it can all be done without the specific managed switch in question. Would only need an unmanaged switch to move the data to a single port on the router and then assign all traffic going out the router (via the WAN port) on vlan 34 with the appropriate 802.1p tag of 4 (if its possible).
Tech was out and installed the FibreOp TV box. We weren't able to get any sort of connection on it with the router in Transparent Bridge mode (tried network ports as well as HPNA port) - had to revert to normal mode to get TV working. Do you have any additional information on how to go about enabling this setup? I consider myself quite technically adept, so feel free to go heavy on the details. Thanks.Short answer: Yes, it will continue to work.
