    I am trying to connect my old Linksys WRH54G with DD-WRT firmware (main router) to my new Linksys E1200 with Cisco firmware (as access point). However, I want two SSID's available on my WLAN. One is for my Home network, and another is for my Guest network. The Guest network should not be able to communicate with my home network as to provide security for my home devices. I have already created for my Guest network a separate bridge with a different subnet and a different DHCP range from the ones on my Home network. I have configured these in my main router. It works perfectly on my main router. However, I don't know how to configure my access point to duplicate both SSID's. I understand that using the bridge mode and then putting a same SSID and password on my access point will provide a smooth handover for my mobile devices (though I haven't really tried it yet). However, since I have two SSID's, my question is how do I broadcast on my access point the SSID's of both networks if only one can be registered? Is this setup even possible? If not, do you have a different workaround? Thanks. I'd appreciate all the help I can get.
