    Does Tomato firmware support multiple Wireless VLANs? I need 2 VLANS to allow one VLAN to use WEP and the other to use WPA2. is this possible with tomato firmware?

    yes I think it's possible the VLANs are set in the nvram
    I know how to split them to two groups but I have not idea how to use
    different encryptions on them...

    Does this mean tomato can run multiple (2) SSIDs on one device? I looked through the faqs and did a search and didn't see any mention of the sort. I see 5 different macs and possibly two wireless devices (1 for each antenna?) in the NVRAM contents printout on my wrt54gs V2. Do you have any links that may point or describe how to set up such a config if so? Or are some required components currently intertwined and not duplicated (encryption)?

    Lespa. the answer I hope is Yes but not from the WebGUI. I personally have no idea on how to do this. just hoping someone here has done this already.

    basically I have several WPA2 devices and several WEP devices. I wish not to lower security encryption for the devices that have the higher security encryption if possible, but keep Tomato Firmware. I know other firmwares like Sveasoft and afaik DD-WRT firmware do have this option build into the WebGUI, but would like to keep Tomato firmware if possible.

    Are you saying you have a client device that supports WPA2 but not WEP, and also a differnt device that supports WEP but not WPA2 ? That would be the only reason you would need to simultaneously support both protocols, otherwise just run one or the other. The router is only as secure as it's weakest link. DD-WRT will support 4 SSID with various encryptions and is artificially limited to 4 since the hardware drivers support 16.

    As I said before.

    The devices that use WEP only need internet access and not any access to any part of the LAN.

    Edit - Never mind, I just noticed that you mentioned v-lan.

    I'm hoping Tomato could do this as well. I don't want to go back to DD-WRT just for this feature.
