DD-WRT Kong Mod for NETGEAR R7000 2017-01-03 - Virtual wireless issue

I flashed the router to the above version of DD-WRT with no issues and made PureVPN the default gateway again with no issues.

The 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wifi options are both working perfectly.

I'd atually like to create a GUEST wifi so followed the various tutorials to create a virtual wifi adaptor,  but whatever I do I cannot connect to this virtual wifi as it states incorrect password and if I set it to no security it then says "no internet"

Any suggestions please?

What version are you using? 

What version are you using?  Im still using r29300, and guest wifi doesn't seem to be compatible with the 2.4Ghz broadcast.  The router will go berserk and lose

connectivity to the internet on one of my 5Ghz broadcasts.  But, the 5Ghz vap is great!  So, I guess Im also asking a question:  Are 2.4Ghz "isolated AP" guest wifi

broadcasts problematic with my build, hardware, or just plain not supported in DD WRT due to overcrowding on the band?

Need Input...More input!

I have the same problem.

I have the same problem. "Virtual Interfaces" created in WiFi settings cannot work properly. I cannot connect to 2.4GHz guest WiFi and 5GHz as well. It seems like a bug.

R7000 v3.0-r31100M kongac (01/08/17)

I had the same issue in

I had the same issue in previous builds. Try adding the following to your iptables ruleset:

# Enable NAT on the WAN port to correct a bug in builds over 17000
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o `get_wanface` -j SNAT --to `nvram get wan_ipaddr`
