Another try with the wrt160nl and openwrt(Part 2) – Installing virtual WLANs

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, openwrt

The next goal was the Konfiguration of two “virtual” WLANs on one physical router ; one private and protected WLAN and one open for Guests ( otherwise protected )

The Code is very simple :

config wifi-iface
option device radio0
option network lan
option mode ap
option ssid Secret-WLAN
option encryption psk
option key Secret
option hidden 1

config wifi-iface
option device radio0
option network lan2
option mode ap
option ssid OpenWLAN
option encryption none
option hidden 1

At last , you need a virutal ethernetdevice as bridiging point for the Second WLAN

config interface lan2
option ifname eth0.2
option type bridge
option proto static
option ipaddr 172.27.1.1
option netmask 255.255.255.0
