Model: Deco X60
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.5 Build 20200709 Rel 46606

I just got the Deco X60 (3 nodes) and so far am mostly happy with it performance-wise. 

 

Feature-wise though, since I use it only in AP mode, I see that most of the configurability options go away when not in router mode.

I understand that many of these don't make sense if not routing, such as QoS, but VLAN tagging is _very_ important for a guest network.

 

For such an expensive set of APs, I'd expect a basic service like this to be availble.

The VLAN tagging is available for router mode from what I've read, so this should be a small effort to enable for AP mode as all the system support is already present in the firmware.

 

Please implement support for this or provide a workaround as soon as possible.

Hello, thanks a lot for your valued suggestions.


Currently, there are not any plans to eventually add the VLAN tagging when the Deco works in AP mode but we do agree that this would be a great feature to have.

 

This will be forwarded as a feature request to our developers for consideration. Thank you again for your feedback.

come on. is this a joke? you just said in a separate thread that guest isolation is done via VLAN tagging and it can be manually specified. Which me and other user do not see that option in the app. refer here https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/219632

I think it will work, but only if you have the Deco in Router mode.

I don't... so cannot use VLAN tagging at all for the "guest" network... basically there is zero value in a 'guest' network for the Deco in AP mode.

 

I'd settle for access to ssh access to the router.  I bought the product, let me configure it how I want!

@p0s1x Thanks I'll check it out, but pretty sure AP mode guest wifi isn't tagged to a VLAN or it wouldn't be able to see my router and access the Internet.
