If you look at the ethernet ports, they are labels etched out below them (but very hard to see). When the ethernet ports are facing you, the left-most port is “Lan 4” and each number decreases down to “Lan 1” right next to the WAN port. Plug your VOIP in the left-most (when the ports are facing you) lan port. labeled “Lan 4.”
Log into the pcwrt router and navigate to Settings / Network. Choose the X1 VLAN on VLAN port 1.
Go th “Apps” and create your VPN connection. Under “Enable for Network” you should see two checkboxes, one labeled “LAN” and one labeled “X1.” Check the box for “LAN” but leave the box for X1 unchecked.
You should be able to start your VPN now and have your VOIP still work (if it does not work on VPN like mine doesn’t).
When I try to use vlan on my hardwired connection, the router will not provide internet access to my computer. I have to restore a backup for internet access to be restored. One of the reasons I bought this router was because I could install VPN on it and exclude some items from the VPN.
I created a VLAN for my phone X1. It is in the port next to the LAN port, so I used VLAN port #1. I set up my VPN and checked LAN but left X1 unchecked. I unplugged and then plugged in my phone again. Still, it will not register.
