    Hello i want my WRT54GS to run 2 vlans, here is what i want:

    Wifi is on vlan 5 (vlanid=5) and the ports 1-4 are on vlan 1 (vlanid=1) now i want the wan port to be present in both vlans (trunk) and has enabled port tagging, i have a router connected to this port which does the vlan routing.

    Is this possible with a WRT54GS?

    i'm doing trunking out the WAN port and have each of the 4 ports on it's own VLAN on my GS... I havn't tried anything with the wifi interface, but I imagine you could configure it as a vlan and have it tagged... by default the wifi and lan interfaces are bridged so you'd want to split them up first if you want them on seperate vlans...
    are you just trying to seperate the wlan from the lan out to your switch?

    if you do a vconfig add eth1 5
    then you should be able to move vlan5 aroudn however you want...
    you'll probably need to break the bridge first for it to work properly.
