I've got no MACs here, but windows 7 and ubuntu work with the test AP 
(both psk and eap) without vlans (And can connect using PSK or EAP).  My 
PSP, and wii and nook can all connect to the PSK network.  the purpose 
of this experiment is to place "gaming" and "Portable" devices on a 
separate, unsecured network, while keeping authenticated devices (such 
as laptops, desktops, servers) on a separate, secured network.

right now the "default vlan" is for the secured clients and I have a 
separate AP with a different SSID bridged to vlan2.
I can make "PSK clients on the default vlans, others on the vlan 
specified" work, and it'd be only a minor headache, but if there's some 
way to specify that "unspecified clients should go on a second vlan", or 
similar it would save some hassle.

Thanks for the information, I should be able to make it work from here, 
at least as best as I can tell.
