    Does the Tomato ND (Teddy Bear mod) support VLANs?

    In the logs it says:

    "Jan 1 00:00:49 unknown user.info kernel: 802.1Q VLAN Support v1.8 Ben Greear <greearb@candelatech.com>"

    ..but I cannot find any further information on whether it does or not.

    I'm new to VLANs and would like to know if Tomato supports them before I go out and buy an expensive managed gigabit switch.

    Cheers

    If you do a forum search for VLAN, you should find plenty of threads on how you set up VLANs on Tomato. I'm afraid to say it's all done via commandline/scripts, there's no GUI to do anything (unlike for instance DD-WRT).

    You need to be aware there's at least 2 types of vlans. Broadcom Ethernet routers split their switch in to vlans for LAN and WAN, the LAN can be further subdivided from the command line with Tomato - web gui in variants of dd-wrt. This creates new Linux interfaces whose function can be programmed/ segregated/ different IP range etc.

    There is also the type of internet comms called VLAN tagging, this allows traffic passing through the same physical port to be identified and routed accordingly. Some ISPs route voice or TV with this kind. I suspect it is kernel support for this that is logged, but I don't know how to add rules using iptables etc - are further userspace apps needed?
