So far, love this gold. It has already combined multiple apps and devices and helped me really understand some aspects of networks I was struggling with. I had looked at the Ubiquity DRM and a few other competitors and the gold was just the right choice to make.
I am stuck on understanding some of the LAN configuration matters on the gold. I have my cable modem connected to the WAN port and all is well with that. I have two separate LANs, one of trivial stuff like webcams, printer, smart TVs, and a few laptops (LAN-JUNK) and one with my PCs, NAS units, and things I care about (LAN-PRIMARY). LAN-JUNK is separate hardware until the FW Gold and is on port 3. LAN-PRIMARY is on ports 1 and 2 and has its own hardware as well. There are two things I want to do but I don't understand the configuration I need to do in the FW Gold and if I missed it in the manual my bad.
1. I want to ensure isolation between the LANs, I don't want a guest laptop or Smart TV on LAN-JUNK even seeing my devices on LAN-PRIMARY.
2. I have two exceptions to #1. I have a printer on LAN-JUNK I want to print to from LAN-PRIMARY and a NAS on LAN-JUNK that I want external access to (its serving to PLEX on my mobile devices) and I want to be able to drop files on that NAS and do backups from LAN-PRIMARY.
I don't see any config options in FW that really let me do these things. Is there documentation on getting this done, I am not too lazy to read but I haven't found it.
