My new ISP requires the gateway / router to connect on VLAN 101 on the WAN. Is there a way to do that via the UI? It does not seem so clear (to me) how and I could not find anything online, that does not involve a lot of shell commands, which is usually not very useful, since most of those are reset /overwritten when the router is rebooted. There seems to be UI functions for it but not sure how to use them and there is no help on the side.
I tried to add a tag with 101 and then check the tag box on the vlan page and untag 1 - but apparently that was a big mistake (bricked the router and I had to reset it to get it back up running and forgot to save settings before) - doh!
And sorry for missing info:
Linksys WRT-1900AC v1 running FW version 42803

swconfig dev switch0 set reset 1
swconfig dev switch0 set enable_vlan 1
swconfig dev switch0 vlan 1 set ports "6 0 1 2 3"
swconfig dev switch0 vlan 2 set ports "5 4t"
swconfig dev switch0 vlan 2 set vid 101
swconfig dev switch0 set apply
to the startup script. After reboot there is no way to contact the router anymore - same thing as happened, when I used the GUI to tag the WAN port. Is it due to the release is too old (but most recent I think v42803)?
