VLAN confusion on v23 sp2 and 54g V3

    I'm stumped. I've read and googled and keep finding reports that my V3 can do this, but I can't seem to get it to work.

    What I am trying to do is:

    Create a new vlan (ie vlan2)
    Add port 2 on the switch and the wlan interface (eth1) to VLAN2

    Why do I want to do this? Ability to monitor all the data on the LAN. In theory, I want this to happen:

    -Packets come in via the AP side of the Linksys

    -The Linksys sends the data to port 2 on the Linksys switch

    -The switch then sends the data to my core switch (which has port mirroring turned on, and sends a copy of the data to the monitoring machine)

    -The switch then sends the data back to the router side of the Linksys and does it's NAT and QoS magic

    Here is what I have done so far:

    (committed to nvram)
    nvram set vlan2hwname=et0
    nvram set vlan2ports=2
    nvram set vlan0ports="1 3 4 5*"

    (not commited yet)
    brctl addbr br1
    brctl addif br1 vlan2
    ifconfig vlan2 up
    ifconfig br1 up
    ifconfig br1

    The problem is that once I send:

    brctl delif br0 eth1
    brctl addif br1 eth1

    ...traffic on the wireless side stops flowing.

    So, oh great, wise, and more learned than I peoples, what am I missing and/or doing wrong?
