How to configure VLAN on your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router

To establish a connection to the Internet, some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) require Virtual LAN (VLAN) to be enabled on your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router's WAN connection.  VLAN settings configure the router to work with IPTV, VoIP and other services that may be provided by your ISP.  Follow the steps below to learn how to do this.

This feature is ONLY supported by the following Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers:
  • EA7500
  • EA8500
  • EA9200
  • EA9500
  • EA8300
  • WRT1200AC
  • WRT1900ACS
  • WRT1900AC
  • WRT3200ACM

Step 1:
Access your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router’s local access interface through a browser like Safari® or Internet Explorer

Select ProfileSelect a pre-configured profile for your ISP's required VLAN settings.  If your ISP is not on the list, select Manual and enter the VLAN information provided by your ISP.
EthernetSome ISP profile dedicates the Port 3 for Voice and Port 4 for Video.  If this is needed, a VoIP device needs to be connected directly to Port 3 and a Video device (such as IPTV) needs to be connected to Port 4.  The other ports (1 and 2) are treated as Data traffic and devices will still get online but treated as Data traffic.
     
Step 5:
In the list, there are several pre-set ISP configuration files.  Select the profile for your ISP.
