      Re: Multiple SSID

      Do you mean will it display multiple or could you change it?

      If it is to change, yes.

      Re: Multiple SSID

      Yeah sorry I mean will it display multiple SSID i.e. two separate SSID's.

      Also, am I right in thinking you get either the Sagem F@ST 2504 or the Netgear DG834GT?

      Re: Multiple SSID

      The new routers are

      Sagem F@ST 2504
      Netgear DG934G

      The old V1 router is

      Netgear DG834GT

      As for multiple SSID, I don't think it is possible. I know you can change it and are advised to do so.

      Re: Multiple SSID

      That's great thanks for posting the screenshot.... the 'wireless station access list' is that just MAC filtering?
      Sorry for all the questions, I can't find a data-sheet or user-manual for the two routers anywhere.

      Re: Multiple SSID

      Forgot to say, I can post some Netgear ones if you need as well.
