    I have the following firmware:

    Tomato Firmware v1.28.7633 .3-Toastman-VLAN-IPT-ND ND Std

    I created a Virtual LAN wl0.1 in addition to the existing primary LAN of eth1(wl0). In the status/overview page it shows up in addition to the primary wl0. wl0 has the channel specification (Channel 1- 2.412 GHz) in its list of data but this specification is missing from the data list of wl0.1.


    1. The reason the channel specification is missing is because wl0.1 is transmitting on the same physical channel as wl0? Also I can not disable/enable wl0.1, those two buttons are displayed only under the primary wl0 LAN data. So I assume if I disable the primary wireless LAN (wl0) the secondary wl0.1 gets also disabled. Is this assumption correct?

    2. If the SSID for wl0 is aaa and for wl0.1 the SSID is bbb, should both SSIDs show up on the available wi-fi list when displayed by my laptop? In my case bbb (wl0.1) does not show up, only aaa (wl0) shows up. Therefore I do not know how my laptop could log into virtual wireless wl0.1 (bbb).

    2. There is a disclaimer that virtual wireless is in experimental phase for this version. Is it possible that virtual wireless is not working on my router? I use an ASUS 520GU router. The primary wi-fi SSID (aaa) works fine, I can log into that network.

    Thanks for your expert opinion in advance.
