HyperV, VLANS - what is required

I have a small home test environment
1.  A physical server running 2012 R2 with Hyper-V
     a.  8 CPU's
     b.  32 Gbyte memory
     c.  7 Tbytes of Disk
     d.  5 ethernet adaptors
2.  150 Mbyte ISP connection
     a.  ASUS RT-AC87R router
     b.  D-Link DGS-2208 switch
3.  7 Windows 2012 R2 vm's
     3 Windows 8.1 vm's
     1 Windows 10 vm

All of this is running from a subnet of

What I'd like to is take advantage of Hyper-V vlan feature and create some subnet's to support say one for the DC's, one for servers, one for workstations....something like,,  Doesn't matter the starting ip, just diffy them up.

So....Considering the hardware/software I have....what else do I need?  I've been reading that I need a smart vlan switch.  How do I define Gateway address and route from one vlan to another?  Is there an option/tool/application to open/close firewall ports between the subnets? I am open to upgrading/replacing switches/routers/ethernet adaptor, but do have cost constraints, so they can't be too expensive.

You can still manage all your VLANs from a regular Router or L3 Switch and have the gateways on the router or switch,
You will just need to create virtual switch via HYPERV's Virtual Network Manager as shown below. That will then create a virtual NIC on the HyperV server.

Switch and edge both need to support VLANs out of the box.

Any WebSmart managed switch would work.

A SonicWall TZ200 series would work very well too.

Sorry it took so long to respond.  

I think I didn't ask the right question because I'm ignorant.  I needed to know what hardware and/or software I need in a small home lab to create managed subnets.

I think the answer best fit the question being asked for a home lab.

WebSmart switches are quite inexpensive if one looks around for them.
