    I have loaded v1.28.7633 .3-Toastman-VLAN-IPT-ND ND VPN on a Linksys WRT54GS v1.1 router. This router returns a 7 for telenet "w10_corerev". A post I read said a level 9 is needed for multi ssid. Undaunted, I decided to try anyway. I am able to configure the VLAN and have tested the two virtual LAN address of the LAN ports, .their dhcp server give me the two distinct addresses ( and However, when I go to the Wireless Interface and try to set up the second ssid, I am unable to modify the second line to add the second wireless. I imagine this is a limitation of the Broadcom BCM4712?? Since Toastman develops a lot on a WRT54GL router, I was wondering if I am doing something wrong or which of the 54G routers I should switch to in order to be able to complete multi ssid. Below are the instructions I followed and I have double checked my work. Want to stay with Toastman as the bandwidth limiter in his QoS is great. Also like the wrt54 series as they are workhorses and fast enough to serve dsl/cable internet to multiple users. Thanks.

    VLAN is only supported on corerev > 9.
    With yours, while you can do virtual SSID, you can't do multiple BSSID, which means the wireless network you would create would be unusable with many devices (like an iPhone or iPad)

    Now if you use a WRT54GL a tad more recent, it would work.
