the NAS should send something that differentiates it...normally
a VSA that has the SSID in it. you can then do a match comparison.

i'd move to 2.1.8 if i were you - the unlang feature is priceless
and makes this very easy to do.

I'd also say...why 2 SSID's ? why pollute the airwaves and divide
things up with extra broadcasts when all you need to do is check
the type of person and use a VLAN to seperate them..if the kit supports
that of course...
