I used a managed switch and created a partition with 2 ports, one to the router WAN and the other to the ISP. Assigned the needed vlan to the port going to the ISP and all was happy. _________________ Segment 1 R9000 10Gb LAN, 1Gb ISP BS

seems that limitation was for the broadcom chipsets, not sure about the qualcomm atheros
still not sure where to start
What ISP do you have? I had a very similar issue a few months ago but gave up, and eventually switched ISPs (for unrelated reasons).
Your case sounds a lot like mine though
Maroc Telecom (Morocco)
I'm sure there is a way to do it, unfortunately no available tutorials out there
I'm in Pakistan. Had the exact same issue here.
Alcatel fiber ONT, with VLAN ID as 881. I tried a bunch of different routers, Broadcom and Qualcomm ones, tried DD-WRT and OpenWRT, it just wouldn't connect.
Eventually managed to get in touch with the Alcatel networking staff in my country, and they said that the ISP has asked to configure it in such a way that users can't use their own routers. Despite all my efforts, even with cloning MAC address, it just wouldn't work.
Gave up, switched ISPs a few months later. _________________ Active devices:
Netgear R7800 - Stock v184.108.40.206
Linksys EA8500 - OpenWRT 19.07.1
ASUS RP-AC68U - 220.127.116.11.382.40019
I don't know how the R7500v2 is wired compared to the R7800. It's probably more equal to the Linksys EA8500
Start by posting the output of SWCONFIG DEV SWITCH0 SHOW
Didn't it work to add the tag at Setup->Networking->VLAN Tagging in the GUI?
Thx for your reply
I tried the VLAN tagging in gui but didn't work
VLAN 0 Interface Tag Number 881 Prio 0 (then port setting WAN Port Assignment eth0.881)
after I did that here is what I got using the swconfig command
Found: switch0 - gpio-0
swconfig switch0 show
swconfig dev <dev> [port <port>|vlan <vlan>] (help|set <key> <value>|get <key>|load <config>|show)
The WAN is VLAN2. You have specified the wrong VLAN.
Put in Command and save as Firewall:
swconfig dev switch0 set enable_vlan 1
swconfig dev switch0 port 0 set pvid 881
swconfig dev switch0 set apply
Correct me if I'm wrong
1- will remove the vlan0 that I set on vlan tagging
2- set vlan tagging 881/0 for vlan2 instead
3- apply the command above (in administration tab)
Thx again for helping
just tried setting vlan 2 on networking tab, in order to do so, I have to create vlan0 and vlan 1, if I delete one of them, vlan2 will change its name to vlan1. do I just leave vlan0 and vlan1 there?
