vlan tagging on E2500?

    I'm running an E2500 with Tomato 1.28 Shibby.

    I'm trying to create a guest SSID tied to VLAN 15. The E2500 is connected to my Internet router via a single cable. The internet router has the default VLAN and a tagged VLAN15 configured on it.

    I've been trying for a couple nights to get this working, but no-go.

    Is VLAN tagging even possible on this router or am I doing something wrong?

    I went to Advanced-LAN and created a BR0-BR1 bridge. No IP addresses.

    Then to the Basic -> Network tab and added an IP address to br1

    Then I created a wl0.1 WLAN interface and tied it to br1.

    Then I went to the VLAN tab and tagged VLAN 1 and 15 on port 1.

    But I can't ping the IP address I added to the bridge, and wireless clients connected to that SSID don't have any connectivity.

    Am I doing something wrong or am I asking too much from this router?

    Just a follow up, I did get this working...using the above configuration.

    Problem was, my switch was in "smart mode" so it was stripping off the tags. As soon as I tagged the port, it started working.
