    Receiving the following error in the logs after installing Tomato Firmware 1.28.0005 112 ND VPN on a WRT54GL.

    vlan0: received packet with own address as source address

    All devices on LAN have unique mac addresses, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

    Any ideas?

    Does your vlan0 interface have an IP bound to it? ifconfig vlan0 will tell you. The term "source address" could refer to IPv4, IPv6, or MAC -- it isn't clear from the message and I don't have the time to go look at the kernel source to see what it's comparing against. :)

    Do you have multiple AP's with the same SSID in your network? I get these all the time when I roam from AP to AP within my network. I don't think they represent an error but I don't know of any way to suppress the msgs either.
