Right now, I have two SSIDs setup, wl0 and wl0.1 using WPA and WEP encryption. I want to be able to apply a MAC filter to both of them but when I go under Wireless -> Mac Filter, I can only enable it for wl0. I've already tested this out and it is indeed only applying it to wl0. Is there a way to get the MAC filtering to work for the 2nd ssid also? I don't mind if it has to use the same list.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier... wanted to test this on my network first to confirm.
This feature works for me on my WRT54GL units with svn 11796 installed. What I mean is, there is only one MAC address list available, but testing it confirms that the list applies to both wl0, and wl0.1.
Which version of dd-wrt are you using? I suspect that upgrading to a newer version may be in order. _________________ WRT54G-RG

Alright just got back from work. Just to let you know, I'm currently using a WRT54G-TM flashed with svn 11805 so that doesn't look to be an issue.
I previously thought that it would use the same list because on the mac filtering screen it said eth1. Some reason after I made my changes it now shows wl0 instead. I'm thinking its how I set it up so I attached screenshots.
I hoping its just a difference in how we set it up and not the type of encryption.
I tried another approach of adding it through the telnet connection. I found that my maclist was using wl0_maclist and there was another setting called wl_maclist. I found this using nvram show. I tried switch it up so everything was under wl_maclist and enabled it. It was definitely still filtering my primary wireless even through the web gui didn't show anything. Either way though, it still had no effect on wl0.1. I'm out of ideas so if anyone has this working and has any suggestions, I'm open to them.
