I don't see this documented anywhere, and it doesn't work as I imagine.

GUI

a) There is a choice per VLAN row, "Assigned to bridge" of None or LAN.
b) There is a choice at the bottom, "Wireless" of None or LAN.

How it works in the GUI

c) By default, VLAN 1 and VLAN 2 are both bridged (?) to LAN. And "Wireless" is also set to LAN.

d) If I change "Wireless" to "None", it goes back to LAN within a minute/after reboot.

e) If I add another VLAN to LAN, it goes back to None within a minute or so.

Questions


1) What do these actually mean?

2) Are tweaks to these suggested/needed in this scenario?... I want to set up DDWRT as a set of VAP+VLAN for each WiFi, all going to tagged VLAN wired trunk to my smart switch + fast pfSense firewall. Thus, I do NOT want to bridge WiFi to other ports other than virtual VLANs. (I have gigabit up/down internet with fiber to the home. The separate pfSense/PC gives me that quite easily. Thus, my R7000 is more or less a WiFi front end now. Very Happy )
