    This is my first post. So please forgive me if I am asking something that is asked a lot, or there is documentation on.

    This is what I am looking to do:

    I will be feeding from my ASA 5505 eventually, but right now I have a Netopia DSL Router than is feeding the Linksys a WRT310N I would like Ports 1&2 on Vlan5(for conversation sake) and Ports 3&4 to VLAN10 I would like both to have thier own DHCP Server.

    The problem I have is that I am not sure how to configure the router to do this? I have setup it up how I believe it needs to be done, but it was not working. Does it need to be a Router instead of a Gateway? Please assume I know nothing about configuring these routers.

    Thank you

    Take this from the standpoint i have never logged into the 310 line so i dont know what features it offers, but most linksys devices do not have the ability out of the box to vlan let alone have multi vlan dhcp. Now some can be configured with multiple vlan via 3rd party firmware but the only way to multidhcp that i know of is to script it yourself.

    I forgot to mention that I am running V24SP1 of DD-WRT STD on the WRT310N

    Then yes, you already know you can have multiple vlans, now all you need is to figure out how to script a second dhcp server for the other vlan.

    Yes, I knew I could do it, I just am not sure how to configure it. There is a place for Virtual DHCP, but I cannot seem to figure out how to configure them and make them work correctly? I was looking to some DD-WRT Support Documentation or something like that?

    Check on, I think the wiki. I forget exactly what it's called, but it's something about multiple VLANs.
