    Using "tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.0498.1MIPSR2-Toastman-VLAN-RT-N-VPN-NOCAT",
    with two SSIDs setup on the 2.4 band using an E4200 v1. On the guest I do have WPA2 w/ a password and on the private network I have the same setup with Wireless Client Filter configured.

    Since upgrading to "Tomato Firmware v1.28.0500 MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N K26 USB VLAN-VPN-NOCAT" Wireless Client Filter effects both the guest and the private network.

    Is there a setting that disables Wireless Client Filter on the guest ssid?

    ANy new thoughts? I've tried "tomato-E4200USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.0502.1MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT" and still have the same issue where guests are effected by Wireless Client Filter

    Wireless client filter is just MAC address filtering, right?

    MAC address filtering is fairly worthless from a security standpoint, and its completely worthless if you have a device that's connected to the wireless network 24/7 or nearly so (e.g. game system, consumer device, etc.). Selecting a strong passphrase and using WPA2/AES will introduce real stumbling blocks. MAC filtering and disabling BSSIDs rank around the level of putting a sign on a door asking people not to open it.

    I think having WPA2+AES and Wireless filter is better than having only WPA2...

    Therefore I want to have wireless filter for my internal WiFi, but not for the Guest-WiFi (which is technically a virtual wireless) - does anyone know how to achieve this?
    Or maybe Toastman, do you want to include such a Feature in the Wireless filter GUI? :)

    can you run
    nvram show | grep macmode

    and paste results?

    you can set e.g. "nvram set wl0_macmode="allow" to allow only certain macs, deny to deny only certain macs.. all i think was allowing all but try to disable mac filter, run nvram Show as above to be sure which Switch is Setting to allow all

    after changes do "nvram commit"
