Migrating from 5 port Mikrotik switch with 2 vlans to an 8 port Mikrotik router. How to isolate ports
I just replaced a 5 port Mikrotik switch with an 8 port Mikrotik router. I thought I was buying a bigger switch and didn't realize it was a router.
The 5 port switch had a VLAN configuration which isolated ports 1, 2 and 3 on one vlan with 4 and 5 on another vlan. This was important because I needed the first vlan to connect to a different PPPoE server than the second one.
This thing is up on a remote hill and not real easy to get to.
I plugged in the router and now I have a flat network.
I am confused by the Mikrotik router user interface. There is a switch section that is separate from the interface section.
Can someone help me isolate these two sets of ports?
