FWP - VLAN in Bridge Mode
I am trying to fix something short term until I an but a proper managed switch and AP which supports WVLANs. If my network config is:
Router > FWP in Bridge Mode > WLAN AP (technically router in Bridge Mode) and I want to do this:
"To monitor different VLANs on the network, you will need to use the network manager to add a new bridge interface with the VLAN ID you want to monitor."
Can I use the FWP in Bridge Mode to create the VLAN or do I need to create it at the Router which is 'in front of' the FWP?
No. In bridge mode, the FWP isn't doing routing. The passage you quoted means that if the network you're monitoring already has VLANs, you need to add them to the FWP if you want them monitored.
You'll need to get the proper managed switch and AP, and switch to router mode, to make use of VLANs.
