Hi Gurus,

I have just setup my new 857W, I have Wireless working no problems.

But I was wondering why I have 2 "networks" that I can connect to when I go to "Connect to a network" In Vista?

I have the SSID displaying that I setup, no worries there, but I also have "Unnamed Network" as well, which is definitely coming from my router because they both disappear if I shutdown the interface - and I can also connect to it.

Have I done something wrong, or is there something I have missed?

Also have I configured this correctly using dot1q even though I only want one SSID, or is there a better way I should be doing this?

I worked it out - all I had to do was enable "guest-mode" on the ssid and now I do not see the "Unnamed Network".
