Default wireless isolation

I am running a D-Link DGL-4500 as my primary router and i have a DD-WRT flashed linksys wrt54g that i am wanting to run as an extension of my wireless network running on my main router (the d-link), what i would like to do is create a virtual wireless network on my main router ,to connect my linksys router to and keep it completely cut off from everything on my network except my wan port on the main router so as to keep any curious ones off of my server and my main rig, mainly so i dont have to give out any keys or ssid's, i guess this boils down to two main questions.

1. does anyone know if the d-link has this functionality

2. and if so what would it be called

( i hope that with just that info i can google and learn how to set it up, but its 1:30 in the morn here and im sick of google)

You may need to flash the main router to DD-WRT as well
Then follow the Wiki at http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php...ials]Tutorials - DD-WRT Wiki
I am not familiar with the Dlink software to know if it can be done. I would think that it is a residential/end user type firmware not a commercial type as is DD-WRT

This should get the job done


Wireless is supposed to be fun

I was afraid someone was going to say that, i wasn't as reluctant to flash my old lynksis (since its out of date and 25 bucks), but this d-link is a $140 beast....i will have to consider how much i want to do it before i follow through, to those that are curious anyway here is an emulator of the firmware on the dlink i have.
