    So I am trying to configure my router to have a wired guest network on port 4. Ideally I would like to limit its bandwidth to 50% on the internet.

    Now I found this article
    https://www.snbforums.com/threads/f...guest-network-for-asus-merlin-rt-ac68u.18969/
    And below is for the AC66

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # force LAN port 4 to use the Guest Network for RT-AC66U
    robocfg vlan 1 ports "1 2 3 8t"
    robocfg vlan 10 ports "4 8t"
    vconfig add eth0 10
    ifconfig vlan10 up
    brctl addif br0 vlan10
    ebtables -t broute -I BROUTING -p IPv4 -i vlan10 --ip-dst 192.168.1.0/24 --ip-proto tcp -j DROP
    ebtables -t filter -I FORWARD -i vlan10 -o ! eth0 -j DROP
    ebtables -t filter -I FORWARD -i ! eth0 -o vlan10 -j DROP

    On Port 4 I then have it connected to a Draytek Modem. I was hoping that everything connected to the draytek would go through the port 4 as guest network.

    I'm having difficulty testing as I to be honest I don't know what tool to use for it. All I can do is on the ASUS router page I can still see all the connected devices using the IP 192.168.1.x I was expecting them to use a different IP adress i.e. 192.200.1.x

    I'd be grateful for any help here. Even a recommendation for what equipment I should buy.

    My wireless guest clients get assigned IPs from the same DHCP pool as other clients.
    AFA testing, can you log-in to the Draytek from the private LAN? If so, seems like it isn't isolated. And if it isn't isolated, it isn't effective for implementing a Guest network.

    BTW, I don't think you want to hang a modem off the LAN port. Is it a combo modem/router?
