[Users] Create VLAN for WAN traffic

I'm not very knowledgeable in VLANs. Sorry for the lack of knowledge in 

Is it possible to create a VLAN for WAN traffic, to separate it from the 
internal network? I'd imagine so. It was a automated and simple process 
when use XenServer. I'm trying to switch from Xen to oVirt and when 
trying to recreate this, I'm unable to ping out from the VM.

This leads me to believe the VLAN was created incorrectly. I created 
ifcfg-br1 on the host and through the engine, created the logical 
network with VLAN tagging 20. Does the interface, ifcfg-br1, require a 
public IP, any IP address, no ip address? (Sorry, never created a VLAN 
for WAN traffic as it was automated in XenServer)

 From there I have the VM installed and configured with a public IP 
address, however, only get Destination Host Unreachable, meaning it has 
no route out.

I am banging my head on the desk trying to figure this out. Can anyone 
give me any assistance?

Thank you,
