    I downloaded the lastest alplha and flashed my WRT54GSv4. I attempted to create multiple ssids. The first was setup up with wpa security. I added a second ssid on that same page, gave it a name and wep security and enabled it. I rebooted the router. When I do a survey from one of my computers, I only see the wpa ssid. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Using v24 I am also experiencing unreliable multiple SSID's. I am basically taking the stance that v24 is very much still in development. I believe I read that Brainslayer is using a different driver for the wireless section and should be considered untested.

    Every couple weeks or so I flash the latest v24 to hopefully see some improvement. I have been able to get the router to broadcast 2 SSID's if one of them has no encryption. I know that is not sufficient for some, but again this firmware should not be in use for production without understanding the consequences that come with it.

    Good Luck.

    It is recommended that you only broadcast one SSID and disable broadcasting for any other wireless vlans you create. Wireless network adapters can get confused by seeing multiple SSID's with the same MAC.

    that seems a bit odd. if that were true, why would Cisco employ such a feature:

    i'm sure the problem stems from this being alpha. i'm not ballsy enough to through alpha versions of anything on my hardware. be curious to check out the beta though once it's available.

    Is it possible with the latest v24 to connect wirelessly to an open AP's SSID and rebroadcast that signal encrypted on another SSID?
