No, don't worry about the bridging.  If you do bridge the new interface with an existing one it
becomes a straight bridge - with NO interface address.

  Hi Aaron-
  Hugely appreciated (hope this works!). Quick follow-up for you:

  Okay so it says "Bridge with" (When you click "(assign)" and you click on the new VLAN interface)
... In my case since the VLAN's are configured on the LAN interface, would I need to specify any
bridge at all? It gives me the option of "none", "WAN" and "LAN"...

  Thanks again,

  Adam

    First, I think I saw earlier you are using 1.2b8. If so, I am not and I'm 
    not sure if anything has changed in the way the VLAN's are set up.

    Next to "Interfaces" on the GUI there is a button for "assign".  Click 
    there.  Then there are two tabs at the top - "Interface assignments" and 
    "VLANs".  In the VLANs tab is where they are first created.  Add a VID and a 
    host interface, LAN in your case.  Then go back to the Interface assignments 
    tab.  Add an interface, virtual of course, and choose the VID from the drop 
    down list.  Assuming you will be using the m0n0wall for a gateway on each 
    VLAN, go to the interface name (Interfaces on main menu at left) and 
    configure the host address and CIDR value.  After a reboot the interface can 
    be used just as any other.

    So far I have 8 VIDs configured on my box.  But I may have the need to go 
    way higher.  If you are setting up a lot, just create the VLAN all at once, 
    assign the interfaces all at once, and so on.  You may want to create one or 
    two to practice and make sure I didn't miss any steps (I'd never do that. 
    Would I? Jokes).

    Any questions, let me know.

    Aaron

    Aaron- where did you set these up? I'm a little new to m0n0 and I can't find 
    ref of them for the LIFE of me. I need to set-up about 50 on the LAN 
    interface...

    Thanks,

    Adam

      I know m0n0 can work with VID's from 1-4094.  What is the most VID's 
    anyone has configured on a single box?

      Thanks for everyone's input.
