We have an Edgemax Pro 8. Each port is configured with different networks/subnets
LAN2 has 2 AP's and a computer.
We need the computer to be routed with LAN1 instead of LAN2. Is it possible with a VLAN or some other configuration to have that device on LAN1 while plugged into LAN2's ethernet port? We could run a physical cable but wanted to see if there is an easy way to do it via the router first.

If you buy a switch and plug that into LAN2, then set the switch's PVID to LAN2 and the port that the PC is plugged into's PVID to LAN1, and trunk the connection between the switch and the router, it'll work fine.
Oh, but you will need to bridge the interfaces on the router, which will introduce a performance hit. Unless your LAN1 port is actually connected to another VLAN-capable switch, in which case you can connect the PC to that.
