    I've been working on setting up a VLAN on my AC68u running Advanced Tomato version 3.4-138 AIO-64K. I've been following some guides I found searching google, and for the most part, I assume I have everything setup ok. My question involves assigning VLANs to ports.

    Here's the steps I followed:

    1. Create a new bridge interface, which will allow me to associate a new VLAN with a physical port. The orginal bride is br0 (with an ip address of and the new bridge is called br1 ( with an ip address of I also disabled STP and enabled DHCP

    2. Create a new VLAN. The original configuration had 2 VLANS: VLAN1 and VLAN2. VLAN1 orginally had 4 ports selected and was associated with br0. VLAN2 had the WAN port selected and was associated with WAN. I created a new VLAN called VLAN3. I selected port 1 to be associated with VLAN3 and I unchecked it from the VLAN1 section so it wouldnt be associated with it. My final configuration page looks similar to this:


    This is where my issue comes up. After I click on save and reboot, I noticed that port 1 (and ports 2,3,4) is still checked under VLAN1, even though I previously deselected it from VLAN1. So after rebooting, Port 1 ends up being checked under both VLAN1 and VLAN3. And no matter what I do, I cant get port 1 to be assigned only to VLAN3. I also tried to change it via telnet into the router. I use the following commands:

    nvram set vlan1ports="2 3 4 5*"
    nvram set vlan3ports="1 5"
    nvram commit

    question: Is this something that is normal, or is it something that should be changed? What else can I do to change it?
