    Double-check if your R7000 can do VLAN to SSID mapping.  I don't think it can.

    yeah i don't think so either can't find any reference to it 

    i guess for now i can try using an older ap and just have 2 aps with one dedicated to my iots

    is there any recommended list for APs with vlan to ssid mapping?  i see the tp-link wa801nd has 4 ssids it can map to vlans and its only 25 bucks it might not be strong enough to reach the ends of my house though ... thanks

    I had a R7000, it cannot do VLAN to SSID mapping in AP mode. In the router mode, it can can do it. I gave it to my parents and got a couple of TPLink EAP245.

    Hi thanks for the comments.  I understand now that most consumer focused routers/aps do not support the  VLAN to SSID mapping.  I may get the EAP245 but am still shopping.  Will post my solution :)
