Tomato VLAN - Can 2 Virtual Wireless Nets Use Different Encryption?

    I'm wondering if it's possible/reliable to do this. I want to set up 2 wireless VLANs on the 2.4Ghz band of my RT-N66U, 1 with WEP encryption and the other with WPA. Would also like to run 1 as b+g and the other as n.

    I suspect both of these are impossible, but figured it's worth asking.

    Entirely possible. I've run virtual SSIDs with different security. Remember, however, that you only have 1 2.4ghz radio. This means that all your virtual SSIDs will share the same wireless channel. You can't have your N VAP on channel 1 and your B/G VAP on a different channel.

    Also note that anytime a "G" client is connected, your N network will revert to G speeds. This is true of B as well. If just one B device connects, all of your VAPs (including the N VAP) will revert to B speeds.
