    Hello @Zyxel_Ryan

    Thank you again for all of your help and patience. I'm attaching a Network Diagram of what I'm hoping to accomplish.

    Please review and let me know your thoughts. I did end up purchasing additional ZyXEL switches because I realized that it would be necessary in order for me to accomplish the design on this Network Diagram.

    I stuck with the GS-1900 series, just to keep everything the same.

    Since you know the ZyXEL switches very well, please feel free to list whatever steps will be necessary for me to configure the switches accordingly.

    Thank you again!

    Hi @B1ggJoe

    According to your topology, I will recommend you to set VLANs below. 
    1. For ports connected with APs and Gateway, set ports as Tagged. For example, if the port 2 connects with AP, port 2 should be Tagged in VLAN 1, 2, 3 because AP contains these 3 VLANs.   
    2. For ports connected with end-devices, set ports as Untagged.

    Hi B1ggJoe,

    I'm a little curious about your home deployment needing multiple VLANs.
    I can understand segregating IPTVs and maybe security cameras among VLANs for traffic priority... but for the WiFi as well?
    Is this perhaps to create parental control over the kids? xD
