Simple VLAN question for Netgear GS7090TPS switch

We purchased a new netgear switch to replace an older one.  We just use the basic functions with the exception of 3 VLANs:  102 (data) 112 (guest which is segmented besides a printer and the gateway) and 202 (voice).  The older swtich makes no use of the default 1 VLAN.  This essentially made PVID 202 use ports 1-24, PVID 112 use ports 25-28, and PVID 102 using 29-48.

I set everything up exactly on the new switch but doing so locks me out of online management interface as I have read that it requires VLAN 1 to be accessible.  I figured I could just use VLAN 1 in place of the 102 VLAN on the other switch.  This kind of works but the problem is this default VLAN then untags itself from any port which does not use 1 as its PVID.  This makes it so that VLAN 112 cannot access anything outside of its own VLAN.

Essentially my question is, how do I set up VLANs without using the default vlan of 1 and still be able to access the management interface.  Thanks!

You set the management VLAN in the system/management/IP configuration area.
