    Is there a 3rd party software to configure a standard home router to act as
    a Wireless Access Point for two different networks and two different SSIDs?

    At the same time? How would that work?

    Wouldn't the 'device' (router/AP) need two radios to do that?

    And then (exactly) what would its function be?

    Do you have some kind of existing commercial presumably expensive device
    to exemplify what you are talking about?

    If you can drop the 'two channels' requirement it's easy enough. If it
    has to be two channels then just using two APs would probably be cheaper.

    OK. Maybe 2 channels aren't needed but desired just the same to reduce
    congestion on each frequency. Still.... how would a single router be
    configured to handle 2 networks and 2 SSIDs on one channel?

    Check out dd-wrt (www.dd-wrt.com) for an example of 3rd party firmware
    that provides that feature.

    Was it really necessary to post that twice?
