VLANs and Routing on the T3200M

SaroshM
Just Moved In

I'd like to set up multiple VLANs on my home network and have them access the Internet through the T3200M modem. I would also like to configure different ports on the modem to accommodate different VLANs. There seems to be no visible configuration option to do this.

 

Does the T3200M support VLANs and routing? Are there any hidden confguration pages to do this? Does anyone have experience on how this could be achieved?

 

Thanks in advance.

VLAN would require you to provide your own routing equipment.  You can enable port 1 bridging feature on the t3200m to pass through the connection off the #1 ethernet port on that model to pass through the connection to your own router and bypass the internal routing features of the t3200m.  At that point it is up to you to configure and support your own router.

 

The t3200 does not provide any vlan tagging features.  It provides basic level NAT routing, some minor firewall features like port forwarding you can configure or ability to enable or disable uPNP feature if you want random internal applications to create their own firewall rules (dangerous)

 

In general if you have TV service it can be very difficult to get working on any third party router as multicast traffic is very hard to get working on most routers.  You can keep the TV devices wired to the other 3 ports to stay on the Telus router.  Telus will give their router 1 IP, your own router gets a different public IP when it the port 1 bridge mode.  You would likely also want to disable the built in wifi if you are using your own router and you would again have to manage and support your own wifi radios.

You're basically looking for pro / commercial level features on a consumer gateway. I doubt the T3200M can do what you're wanting.
