[semi-OT] "virtual AP" (multiple beacon, multiple BSSID) on Linksysh/w

If that Linksys is an Atheros device, the hardware should be capable. Is
there an enabled telnet interface? If so, you may be able to configure VAPs
that way.

You may also find alternative load images that might have that capability.

Cheers, Bob
