TP-Link WDR4300 VLan bug

For my new home network I wanted a VLan for guest WLan and untagged traffic for the regular users. As I tested the configuration some weird problems occured: Packets where being sent untagged from the WDR4300 to my router. The router sent untagged packets back but they didn‘t reach the client.

Searching for this problem on the web I found this bug. A Solution was added at the bottom of the page but it has only been approved by one person. I built another workaround: The switch connecting my router and the WDR4300 is a Cisco SG200-08, a small managed switch. I configured it to receive VLan 1 from WDR as tagged. So the switch can send the previous untagged packages as tagged with VID 1 and the Cisco takes care the rest.
