Ah, so far this is good, but I am getting a bit frustrated. I couldn't say for certain, but it's looking like although there is the support for 4 ssids, there isn't any support for vlans. Bassically, you can create 4 names with 4 different types of security, but other than that you are screwed: no multi-network access. Really, there is no point in having different names and securities if they don't lead to different things and I think this is a huge oversight on their parts. I had plans to make a guest wireless with a captive portal, but that idea has been shot down since I wouldn't be able to with this ap..

Who knows.. I'll update the firmware and let you all know what I find. The other AP's right after this support vlans, so maybe the update will fix it..
