The wan port is likely a dedicated, non-switch interface (e.g. eth1) on
this model. If you want to declare VLANs on it then simply create a new
interface using eth1.Y as manual physical ifname where Y denotes the
desired VLAN id.

yes, I think you are right.

eth0 is the yellow wan port

and eth1 is the 4 port switch on this hardware

but now I have a problem, how do i get tagged VLAN  traffic coming in on eth0.96 eth0.128 eth0.144 eth0.160 eth0.168 to ‘connect’ or ‘forward’ to the relevant eth1.VLANID ? on other models the wan port is part of the same switch and I can tick the ‘cpu’ port in luci to ‘transport’ or ‘forward’ the right wan VLAn with the right LAN port 1 - 4.

How can I do this on this hardware which has one wan port that is not part of the switch and for lan ports that are part of the switch that luci shows under the ‘switch’ page?

or do I have to ‘forget’ about using the ‘wan’ port and work with the lan ports 1 - 4 only?
