I have recently been asked my management of the company I work for to setup customer internet access in our showroom, since I do not have any free hardware I was hoping to be able to use a Cisco 1100G we have deployed with a second SSID.

I have run into problems setting up VLAN's as the Cisco 870 router already has a VLAN on our work subnet ( and since employees still need to use it and access resources on that network I can't see how I can do that without a gateway in between the AP and my other servers.

My plan (sans the VLANs)

Customer laptop -> Cisco 1100G (SSID: customer-ap) -> Cisco Catalyst 2950 -> Cisco 870
Employees -> Cisco 1100G (SSID: glg-ap) -> Cisco Catalyst 2950 -> Work servers / Cisco 870

I'll admit I haven't had a lot of experience with the VLAN's so I might be looking at things the wrong way but I have endeavored to research the subject on Cisco's site and done a fair bit of googling.

I'm currently considering either a separate physical AP or re purposing the 1100G as it doesn't see a large amount of use at the moment but I would rather do the above if possible.

Any suggestions as to how I could segment the traffic from each SSID would be appreciated as that's my ultimate goal.
