Multiple SSIDs won't be included in OpenWrt WhiteRussian - this  
feature has been added to Kamikaze, but is broken at the moment. And  
it is a low priority for the OpenWrt developers ...

But I don't see much need for this feature ... any private data  
should be running on an encrypted protocol ...

Cheers, Max!
