I have several Linksys E3000 APs with OpenWRT, and I just bricked 2 of them when I tried to enable 5GHz WiFi. I'm also trying to use multiple SSIDs.
However, I just realized that according to https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/hardware/soc/soc.broadcom.bcm47xx, OpenWRT ships with b43 drivers by default. These do not seem to support multiple SSID, and might not work properly with 5GHz. I don't really care for 5GHz, but I do require multi-SSID support.
Can I get multi-SSID support with the broadcom-wl drivers?
If so, is there a complete guide to install these drivers apart from the link above?
Will my current wifi configuration still work with the new drivers, or will I need to rewrite it all. Will I be able to manage the interfaces with LuCI, at least for the most common settings (VLANs, etc)?
I'm looking to support 2 or 3 SSIDs each one in its own VLAN on a Linksys E3000. Are there other (simpler) alternatives, or am I doomed?
