    I have a question about setting something up with a rt-n66u (latest fw release) and I can't set it up over the GUI so I was wondering what would be the official way of setting this up, if even possible. I hope someone can help me out.

    I have a rt-n66u on which I want to have 4 vlans. Two of these Vlans have to be bandwith managed for wan access, but it should not affect the network speed when accessing a server on the 3rd vlan, accessible from all the other vlans.

    The problem is that if I set a bandwith limit on a bridge port that limit is also in effect when accessing the server on the shared vlan.

    Is my situation possible to set up? I guess so..

    Is there an easy situation to override the bandwith limit when the destination is another internal vlan port or do I have to setup another bridge in the shell so I can restrict the limit on the bridge with the wan access and leave the other one unrestricted..

    Some help would be great, thank you very much!

    edit: I guess the most easy way is too have the shared server have a virtual interface on each network with vlan tagging so it can be seen as a local server. But if someone has a more gracious solution, more relying on the router I would gladly hear them

    With kind regards,

    Vlan's and all that didnt work. I had it running by using another switch, but that was not the way i wanted to go...

    I finally solved it by implementing QOS and restricting speed for the vlans on base of their ip range.
