    I know Tomato is able to do VLAN's by command, but can it also do multiple DHCP?

    If these things are possible, would anyone be willing to help me set it up?

    Thanks

    I'm sure dnsmasq, used as LAN dhcp, can do multiple dhcp scopes via the web gui extra even without vlans, the advantage of vlans being that users cannot simple change IP address range to connect to the other LANs. There's been a few threads about dnsmasq options, and there's a useful docs and forum on thekelleys.org.uk (note a new version is in testing which includes some new features, such as multiple network cards in same computer getting same IP address).

    A new testing version of tomato with new features? Where can I get it?

    Thanks for the info...I will have to look up dnsmasq and see what I can learn. I would love to switch back to tomato!
    Just from what I have read on it so far looks like it could be the fix! (If I can set up 2 different networks!)
    If you know of any good forum threads on it pleas post...Thanks!!

    Would that be the one located over here TomatoMod 1.21 *TEST VERSION 5*
    If it is...I tried the dnsmasq and could not get it to work. Is that part working?
    I tried to enter
    host=MACaddress,ipaddress
    would that be the correct syntax? Or would I need to edit the conf?
    Thanks
