FreshTomato supports VLAN (Virtual LAN) configurations which conform to the 802.1Q standard. The user can create up to 16 VLANs. A VLAN can use a VID between 1 and 4094.
Please use FreshTomato 2021.8 and newer to make VLANs work properly on ALL ARM and MIPS router. (See examples below.)
This section contains the assignments of wireless interfaces to various LAN bridges.
The following settings are also mandatory:
Configuration example for German Telekom ISP
Europe's biggest telecom company supports a dual-stack setup (IPv4 & IPv6). For the WAN Port a VLAN tag is required with a value of 7 (VID 7).
As mentioned above, for VLANs to function properly, please use FreshTomato 2021.8 or newer. All older versions, (including Shibby/Toastman/AdvancedTomato) may not work as expected (see following examples).
PPPoE connections work only when the following workaround is implemented:
Example 1: You are using FreshTomato 2021.7 to connect to German Telekom ISP.
German Telekom uses PPPoE with VID: “7”.
⇒ you must use VLAN: “7” using VID: “7” (a “traditional” VLAN/VID mapping).
Example 2: You are using FreshTomato 2021.7 to connect to Freedom internet.
Freedom uses PPPoE , and VLAN: “6” using VID: “6”
Example 3: You are using FT 2021.7 to connect to Vivo FTTH (Brazil).
(Vivo use PPPoE, and VLAN: “10” using VID: “10”)
Starting with release 2021.8, you can select or use any VLAN 0 to 15 (see picture above for example 1 (Telekom ISP), now using VLAN 5 with VID 7)
