I have two WRT3200ACM routers. One as the main router and one as WAP. Both running DD-WRT v3.0-r42602. I have set up a WAP according to the "Normal Version (Same Subnet)" section from this description:
Everything works fine for my main network. Clients connecting to the WAP get a DCHP address as expected from the main router.
I also have three additional subnets; VPN, Guest, and AV. These are set up as VLAN and VAP on the main router, and that works fine as well.
On the WAP, I have configured the VLAN's and VAP's similar to on the main router, except no DHCP and using port 4 with tagged VLAN. For the ease of testing at the moment, ports 0-3 correspond to the subnet and WAN on port 4.
ISSUE: Connecting a cable to each of the four ports gives me a DHCP address from the main router on the correct VLAN. Any client connecting to the three VAP's on the WAP does not receive a DHCP address. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this?

I have updated my IP addresses on the WAP to 254 so that it matches the actual device IP address. That has not changed anything.
I am still open to suggestions as to why the VAPs on the WAP are not connecting to the bridges and the rest of the network. As said, the cabled connections work correctly with the VLANs from the WAP. _________________ Linksys: 2x WRT3200ACM, WRT1900AC, E1200
