Cisco 541N with multiple VLAN SSID's.

I am setting up a Cisco 541N wireless access point.  I have the primary (VLAN 1) SSID up and working with no problems whatsoever.  However, I would like to setup a second VLAN/SSID for guests to use.  This would be setup with a different security scheme.

For example, the primary SSID  named WAP-1 is set as Static-WEP, does not broadcast the SSID, and uses MAC filtering to allow on those MAC's in the list to connect.  Ok, no problem, works great.

The second SSID named WAP-2 is set as WPA-Personal with WPA, WPA2 and TKIP, CCMP (AES).

Here is my problem.  When a laptop connects to the WAP-1 SSID it works like a champ and pulls a DHCP IP address from the network, and goes on its merry way.  However, when that same laptop connects to the WAP-2 SSID it connects without any problems, but never is able to resolve and IP address and therefore has no connectivity.

Is there some setting on the Cisco 541N that I am missing to make two different SSID's work?

Thank you in advance,
Jeff

In adding multiple VLAN's, make sure you assign the proper VLAN number to the associated SSID you are creating.
