This guide will explain how to untag VLANs on the USW Flex Mini switch, using the UniFi Application. There are some limitations, such as using custom port profiles.

Untagging VLANs

New GUI

To untag a VLAN on one of the ports, open the UniFI Application and click on the 'Devices' section

Next, click on the Flex Mini in the list

Once the side panel has opened, click on the 'Ports' tab

Click on a port to edit

Click the 'Port Profile' to edit the VLANs on this port

Selecting 'All' in this list will untag the default VLAN and tag everything else, this would be the best solution for the uplink port.

In this example, the UniFi Controller has two VLANS; 'LAN' and 'VLAN 80'. For this port, we cannot use any custom port profiles, we can only untag one VLAN at a time.

On this controller, there is a custom port profile created, which is tagging 'LAN' and untagging 'VLAN 80' - this is a limitation of the USW Flex Mini.

What you cannot do

To summarise, with the USW Flex Mini we can assign the 'All' profile to any port, which will untag the default VLAN, then tag the rest. Or we can untag one VLAN at a time for each port. With other UniFI Switches we can use the custom profiles for more flexibility.
