Checked under Synology RT1900ac's hood to see how the web filter works.

Sorry to hijack this thread to ask something.

Hi refred89, so VLAN capability is required on the router to support Singtel TV or Singtel Home Bundle Fibre? If I am using the Singtel issued Aztech 7009, I need to stick to LAN4 for Singtel TV?

of cos, the router itself must support vlan..

7009 any port also can use for singtel tv, already answered you on another thread..

You can use a switch that support vlan and the router behind the switch.

Hi,

If a port on 7009 is connected to a switch, then the switch connects to the Singtel TV STB and also some other PCs, the PCs surf Internet?
Any requirement on the switch?

of cos it will work the same. but note, only for unmanaged switch. if you go buy a smart switch, it may not work if u don't configure correctly.

Version: 1.0-5781

(2015/11/02)
Fixed Issues
Fixed an issue where firewall could not block LAN devices from accessing WAN.
Fixed an issue where SRM could not be accessed through router.synology.com in some situations.
Fixed an issue where SRM could not immediately get IPv6 prefix.
Fixed an issue where Wi-Fi SSID disappeared in rare instances.
SRM now allows you to configure IPv4 address priority over IPv6 in Ping.
SRM will now detect if LAN and WAN subnets are the same to avoid connection failure due to subnet overlap.
SRM will now show the current operation channel if Auto is selected for the Channel option.
Adjusted transmission power in channel 2 and 10 of Wi-Fi 2.4GHz.
Updated the Web-filter database in Parental Control.

I think I found the 802.1Q last time in the SRM help.
After confirming with Synology, and YES, the support of VLAN is in their plan...

Hopefully we could get it next year or ASAP

You have to bear part of the responsibility too. Cos u didn't research enough. You might wanna consider to spend a little putting a smart/managed switch between ont and synology router. That will help.

Overall Review

Great Router for Features and Price.

Pros:
1) Attach External USB HD and you get a instant NAS in your network. Its much faster than my 212J which I am retiring.

2) Excellent clean Web based router management (looks like Synology DSM)

3) 802.11 AC speeds are nice

4) Parental controls - I can block any device in the network remotely and Filter inappropriate content


Cons:
Range is not better than similarly spec'ked routers. Eg. 802.11 AC 5GHZ range is shorter than the free DIR 850 that you get with starhub. You will need Access Points if you live in a multi-level home .
