How to create vlans on watchguard x550e router

I would like to create vlans on watchguard x550e router.  Can someone provide me the steps to created them?

these are the following subnets I would like to create;

1)    vlan ID: 1
2)    vlan ID: 2
3)    vlan ID: 3

note: all three vlans need to go out the same WAN interface for internet access

Fo the vlans to be able to access each other how would I set up the firewall rules for this. Can some one provide the steps for this.

Can some provide me the instructions on how to create the VLAN's? Please take note that I have configured the router and I am currently using in the router on a production network and it is working fine. I just want to add it and the other two in to separate vlans.

There was a problem with the connection and was not able to upload the answer directly; hence posted as attachment.

If problem persists would have no option but to post as attachment :( [have tried different browsers but looks like this problem is with connection than a browser problem]

Thank you.
