So I understand that tomato doesn't support multiple SSID ? There is any addons ? DD-WRT has a captive portal ??

Is there any special method of transition from tomato to ddwrt firmware ?

Thanx for help

not my mod - yet. I will add this in near future.

1. As far as my knowledge is concerned, DD-WRT does not provide captive portal support.

2. No special method is necessary for transition from tomato to ddwrt.
You can do this from "Administration->Upgrade" option in Toamto WebUI.

there is no info about support and firmware for wnr3500L v2 So which firmware should I download ?

"WNR3500L ? PY308400093"

Links of Third Party Open Source firmwares for WNR3500Lv2 are:-

DD-WRT (src + built-in firmware)

The way of installation is the same as in tomato eg. May I upgrade firmware "Administration->Upgrade" option in Toamto WebUI andu upload ddwrt-wnr3500lv2-beta-release.chk firmware ? Or should I do another procedure ?

Thanx again for help Subhra !

"ddwrt-wnr3500lv2-beta-release.chk" is a built-in firmware for wnr3500lv2.
Yes you can upload this firmware from your tomato WebUI through "Adminisrtartion->Upgrade" option.

Thank you . I thought that I must compile it first.

March 7, 2012 2:40 AM

If you feel that you need some more features in your ddwrt firmware then only you have to compile the source code (supplied in the package you have downloaded) with that specific feature enabled.
Otherwise you can use the built-in firmware.

Please share your experience of using dd-wrt in wnr3500lv2.

My first observation between tomato and ddwrt is such that ddwrt is better to company networks. Much more advanced settings gives greater opportunities. For me ddwrt is better.

How to separate two SSID with different addressing ?

I have a pfsense router with wifi interface /24 This interface has got dhcp server . I setup static addres for netgar e.g (connected to lan interface on AP) on pfsense.

I would like to achieve:
Two separate SSID with :

- wl0 192.168.10.x for guests (only internet access) (dhcp from pfsense or AP to wireless guests)

- wl0.1 10.10.0.X - access to corporate LAN for employees (domain network with Active Directoryn. On Windows DC I have DHCP for domain clients which
I would like to use for wireless clients too - wl0.1)

So how can I configure on one LAN cable (connected to AP) to allow two different LAN and allow dhcp from corporate LAN for wireless users.

I am also using a similar kind of networking at my side but I am using the virtual AP in no-encryption mode. If you are intersted I can list the steps to configure the same.

Subhra I'm interested please give me info about it.

Below is the summary of the steps to be followed .....

1. Setup dhcp server for your guest netwrok :-

Go to "Setup -> Basic Setup" page and perform the following ,
i) DHCP type -> server
ii) DHCP Server -> enable
iii) Start IP address -> (say)

2. Create a virtual interface from "Wireless -> Basic settings Page" (Interface for your corporate LAN). (What you already did to get Multiple SSIDs).

3. Go to "Services->Services" page, do the following changes.
i) DNSMasq -> enable
ii) LocalDNS Disable
iii) Add following lines to "Addition DNSMasq options" --

4. Go to "Administration->command" page and perform the following ...

i) Add the following lines and click on "Save Firewall"

iptables -I INPUT -i br1 -m state --state NEW -j logaccept
iptables -I FORWARD -i br1 -o vlan2 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

ii) Add the following lines and click on "Save Startup"

brctl addbr br1
brctl delif br0 wl0.1
brctl addif br1 wl0.1
ifconfig br1 netmask
ifconfig br1 up

Try this and let us know about the result.
