The steps to create a secondary SSID that is giving free internet connection in openwrt are the following:

1 Navigate to Network > Wifi > click on the Add button.

2. Once the secondary SSID is created,  click on the Edit button on the same page and scroll down to the Interface Configuration section. Edit the ESSID field so you can give it another name e.g OpenWrt-2. Create a new interface by entering a name in the “create” field and by pressing the Save and apply button. In our example we created interface “wifi2″. Make sure this interface is ticked once it is created. Save and apply the settings. 

3. Navigate to Network > Firewall. Scroll down to the Zones section and make sure you set the settings for the wifi2 interface according to the screenshot: Save and apply the settings.

4. Navigate to Network > Interfaces and click on the Edit button for the wifi2 interface. Make sure you set the settings for the wifi2 interface according to the following two screenshots: Save and apply the settings. That’s it! You have created a secondary SSID that is giving free internet connection in openwrt.
