Multiple SSIDs. Is this theoretical possible?

    In out company we use Cisco Aironet 1200 Acecsspoints which support up to 16 SSIDs that get mapped to VLANS. Would this theoretically be possible with a modified firmware on my linksys WRT65GS or does that hardware not support this feature?

    It would be nice to have an encrypted SSID 'home' where my clients get connected to and an open SSID 'guest' where other clients can connect to. Each SSID should be mapped to its on VLAN and the router should route between VLANS and it should be possible to use access-lists, so that 'guest'-user only can surf via port 80.

    The wlan hardware needs to support multiple essid. I don't belive this cheap wlan chip support this.

    Sveasoft reports that ASUS just released a new source tarball for a wireless driver that now supports multiple SSID on the Broadcom chipset (16 virtual interfaces).

    I suspect that this feature will be supported by many of the other third party firmware distributions.

    The trick will be to get the routing right and also have a clean web interface to support it.

    DD-WRT v24 alpha is supposed to have this feature.
