Is this Cisco 881w router setup possible?

Hello,

I currently have numerous 881w routers configured for users to take home along with a company Laptop as a VPN solution. However, now I have been instructed to make three of the switchports on each router to have direct access to the internet while the VPN connection is active. Is this possible? If it is, may I have a sample configuration on how this can be done? Thanks.

Yes it is.

Simplified:

You make another VLAN for the 3 ports.
You make a ACL for the new VLAN denying inbound traffic on that VLAN to IPs behind the VPN tunnel just to be safe.
You make NAT fo the new VLAN.

Ok. I have created the new Vlan, and assigned it to the three ports. I created the Vlan and assigned it an IP address in a new subnet, and created a new DHCP pool. However when I plug a machine into one of those ports, it will not assign the machine an IP address. I will post the relevant configuration.

Found one problem. In the Private DHCP pool, the default-router is incorrect.

I guess that is the only problem I will have with it. Thanks for the tips.
