I am trying to set up a home network. I have a Linksys E3000 router with DDWRT installed on it.

I would like to have 3 separate broadcast networks.

Network 1: g or b/g. Password protected. Call it "Network"
Network 2: g or b/g. Unbridged, not protected, with bulk internet access. "FreeWiFi"
Network 3: n. Password protected, bridged to network 1. "NetworkTurbo"

I believe the way I have it set up should work, however I do not see a broadcast SSID for NetworkTurbo.

Network and NetworkTurbo are set up as a regular interface 192 168 1 1/24. FreeWiFi is set up as a virtual interface as 192 168 2 1/24.

Wireless SSID is enabled for all of these. Is the virtual interface for FreeWifi getting in the way of NetworkTurbo from broadcasting itself? Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?

Thanks as always!

For Network 3, try giving it a different IP range. Sounds to me like they might be not able to connect both 1 and 3 with the same IP range?
