Hi, long time lurker finally posting.

I have an R9000 and would like to use VLAN to segment IoT devices. Factory netgear firmware will not allow this so I think dd-wrt is solution with said hardware.

Question 1: Can I setup VLAN for not just the physical ports but Wifi Radio?

Question 2: To clarify I want all the IoT on subnet 192.168.2.x and rest of home network on 192.168.1.x but there are IoT and home devices which both use wifi 2.4/5.0Ghz radio. So is this possible to VLAN and segment them apart?

Thanks

There is an "Add Virtual AP" button under the Wireless tab. It will do everything you want. Btw there is a wiki for this also.

You can create different Virtual APs for different wifi radios
