I have a Cisco Aironet 1100 setup simply with a single SSID.  We have a single DHCP server (windows sbs box) and a standard gigabit switch (no vlan capabilities).  We need to create an additional guest network if possible.  I am new to Cisco products overall and am looking for a simple and basic way to accomplish this.  I am not certain if its even possible.

You can't set restrictions per SSID unless you use VLANs, technically speaking.

There is a way you can do it in the CLI, but I wouldn't recommend it and it can get quite messy.  Also, it will affect your ability to configure the AP via the GUI.


If you can't do much in terms of LAN configuration I would do one of the following (depending on how your network is configured), but in any event it's not that simple to secure it if you have a basic network...

1] Install a new AP and let guests connect to that.  This will still allow guests to access your LAN though.
2] Install a wireless router and configure it so that guests only have access to the internet and not your internal network.

Ideally you want an internet router connected to a firewall which protects your LAN from the internet.  This would enable you to connect a wireless router to the internet gateway directly and therefore keep guests off your LAN.

Thanks, that is what  I figured but wanted to be certain.  We are just going to get an additional WAP and run it through the OPT port on the sonicwall which will allow us to create a DMZ.
