Yes, you can assign VLANs to the alternative Ethernet interfaces, so long as you trunk these VLANs over your uplink switch port.

Sorry, there is no VLAN configuration for *Unleashed* AP Ethernet ports.

My mistake if I didn't recognize the Forums catagory when I answered above.

No problem, and thanks for the quick response after 11 months.

Two follow-ups: Are there any plans to add this functionality (since the hardware obviously supports it), and what’s the default VLAN behavior of the switch ports?

There are a number of scenarios I envision where this control would be useful, including:
— Connecting all Unleashed devices to a (default) management VLAN while exposing only a guest VLAN via the ethernet ports.
— Configure the PoE port as an access port to a voice VLAN for use with an in-room IP phone.
— Configure a port as a trunk port to connect to a managed switch (say in an administrative office).

Depending on the default behavior, some or all of these may not be possible with the Unleashed version of this access point, which is unfortunate.

News from Product Management is Yes, VLAN Mgt will be considered for Hotel APs (H510/R320) by 200.7 release of Unleashed.
Thanks for sharing your Field Request.
