    In the most recent release of TomatoUSB by Shibby rel 112-en where exactly is the VLAN support at?

    Can I use it to have a trunk with tagged 128 , 144 , 160 and 168 and have them come out on the switch ports as untagged 128 , 144, 160 and 168?

    Or does it only allow up to 16 VLANs with a contigous vid numbers that can be made to start at an offset that has to be a multiple of 16?

    What is the intent or hope that the option on the VLAN tab called "Trunk VLAN support override (experimental)" should or will do? Sounds like it might be the feauture that allows me to have my setup with multiple tagged VLANs on my trunk?

    I think I found the answer to my own question. ;-) in thread [ur]http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/vlan-tags-work-for-you.34478/[/url]
    It appears as if there is VLAN capability detection code that detects VLAN capable boards and then enables the advanced features in VLAN-GUI. But for boards that users suspect might also support it but for some reason don't get detected as supporting it, one can override it and enable that support, by ticking that box called "Trunk VLAN support override (experimental)" at bottom of page.
    And if it turns out to be working report back the details of the "new" board so it can be added to the grwoing number that are detectd by the code.
