  1. Background: I'm a full time network security engineer for a fintech company. I design and build networks for fun. My current gaming router is a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 flashed with DD-WRT. It's over 6 years old at this point, and I only have moderate success with UPnP (Multiple consoles/pcs active in the house simultaneously, often playing the same game but not always). Due to its age, the DD-WRT project has been abandoned and the most recent firmware is almost two years old at this point. As a network engineer, old firmware makes me unhappy on principal. I'm looking to replace it, but I have a few questions. I'd appreciate any answers! My current setup is a Palo Alto Networks PA-220 firewall router at my edge providing a separate IP address to the gaming router. On the layer 2, I'm driving everything via a cisco switch that has a separate VLAN for the connection between PA-220 and gaming router for public IP, and a second VLAN for the wired gaming local network. Question 1: Does DumaOS support VLAN tagging for the LAN? If so, how difficult is it to configure? Because I have an enterprise grade firewall at my edge, I like to turn off the firewall part of any gaming router I buy. Why do I need two firewalls? Question 2: Is it possible to turn off the firewall? What type of firewall does DumaOS use? (SPI, DPI) Question 3: Anything else I should know? Any other network nerds using Duma? What made you switch off whatever you were using before? I really like to think of my gaming network as "set it and forget it" - I hate having to work after working all day, if you know what I mean. I need something that will do UPnP well because I don't want to be manually creating port forwarding rules every time I buy a new game that wants to use new ports, or add a third (same brand) console into the mix in the future.
