Use VLANs to grant wireless access to only the Internet, not local LAN

I have a client who has a DSL internet connection in bridged mode.  The DSL modem connects to a firewall/router which is where the PPPoE authentication takes place and where the static IP that they use for NAT overload is conifgured.  

This router then in turn connects to a linksys managed switch where the rest of the LAN is also connected.  At this point there is no VLANing other than the native.

We bought them an access point that can do guest access but only through VLANing.  I can't figure out in this configuration how I could configure things so that the guest SSID only has access to the internet.  

Any help is greatly appreciated.
