I’m currently in the process of “de-flattening” my home network and I’ve started using port-based VLANs as opposed to 802.1Q VLAN tagging. In your experience, what are the advantages/disadvantages of both methods. Since it’s for a home environment, the number of clients are limited and once set up, there will be little reason to change/reconfigure things.
Port-based vlan just sets what vlan tag the incoming traffic will have added, and what VLAN’s traffic to possibly send back out that port without a tag. A packet inside the switch will be the same regardless of whether the VLAN tag was on the packet when it entered (802.1q, likely from another switch or a VLAN-aware server/router) or if the tag was added as the traffic entered.
