I have a an ASUS AC88U router which does not directly support VLAN tagging. I want to be able to circumvent that "lack of functionality" by introducing a Cisco SG300 switch between that router and a ESXi server with 6 physical NIC cards. The goal is to have at least 4 of the NIC cards on a separate VLAN for essentially training purposes within my home lab environment.
My thoughts are the following:
1. Connect the SG300 to my ASUS Router by way of a ROUTER on a Stick connection.
2. Have the ports for each of my NIC cards on the server connected to the SG300 as a individual broadcast domain with a VLAN and IP assigned (L3).
My questions and/or concerns are do you think this will work? I know the server NIC cards connected to the SG300 will work, but how to get that traffic successfully passed to the ASUS Router, not directly supporting VLANs is a concern.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My goal is simply to use VLANs within my environment with a home router that doesn't directly (not part of the firmware build) support VLANs.
