I'm not going to repeat what wanderer already posted in response to your reply but I will add to it.
There is no security when they are not on vlans.
Actually, there is. Properly configured subnets with firewalls in between work pretty darn good too. As a client on a LAN in one subnet, you tell me how you'd hack into another subnet without having access to routers and routing tables?
As to VLAN's, I work with them every day. There are many reasons why one would use a VLAN and security is one of the top reasons. But here's the problem. This conversation is about a Linksys SOHO router. Specifically, a WRT54GL, a model I'm very familiar with (I own one). If memory serves me, the default (Linksys) firmware on them doesn't do VLAN's and even if it did, you have no way to assign different VLAN's to separate ports as it's not a managed switch and, you'd still require a router between VLAN's to route traffic.
As for your crack about my age.....you're showing your immaturity by saying what you did. I suspect anybody reading this thread who cares, will know which of us is a mature adult and which isn't.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
