This one is for the holidays if you are bored Smile

I have written down a setup I recently made with two routers, one setup as a WAP, with a combined VLAN between the routers with VAP's on that VLAN and an Open VPN client on the WAP using DNSMasq for Policy Based routing.

A nice showcase of what is possible.

I am no VLAN expert so cannot answer your questions about VLAN's

Just use the wiki it is all there:

Thank you for this. With your help I now have a very similar setup working, with a WAP and 4 VAPs on both routers, connected using a vlan trunk. I'm also using openvpn, but in my case on router 1 (connected to the WAN) in my configuration, also successfully. This means I have no need for the firewall on router 2.

I would not have thought to use the .2 address in the bridges. Also insightful.

Thanks again
