What are multiple (or virtual) SSIDs? In general, multiple (or virtual) SSIDs allow you to create multiple network names or SSIDs on one AP or radio with the ability to customize their individual security and broadcast settings. Additionally, you can assign the virtual SSIDs to different VLANs to provide segregation between the virtual wireless networks.

I had to Google it to figure that out...but there it is. For a home network with a non-technical user, it's probably overkill, but I can see a use for this.

This is great for businesses that want to allow their employees to connect to the company network over a VLAN -- and at the same time to allow their consumers to access free wifi over a less secure network.
