    What do WAN, WL, br0, eth0, br1, vlan0, vlan1 stand for? i don't see any difference between the graphs as I click through them, they are all almost the same, even though I have one LAN and two WLAN computers in my network.

    Check out this image:

    Some of the abbreviations:
    LAN = Local Area Network (your home network), aka vlan0
    vlan = virtual LAN
    WAN = Wide Area Network (your outside of the router, what's coming in and going out to / from the internet), aka vlan1
    WL = Wireless (aka eth1 on my WRT54GL)
    WLAN = Wireless Local Area Network
    br0 = the bridge (the combined switch-ports)
    eth0/1 = Linux' first / second (primary, secondary) network interface
