Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to create a separate (isolated) guest network in my office for wi-fi users.
Right now I only had a dedicated internet connection, with 4 public IP's. I had my sonicwall configured for these, and i had no wifi. my internet provider's ethernet handoff was connected straight to the 'wan' port of the sonicwall.
I added a small dell powerconnect 2016 switch (unmanaged) between the ethernet handoff and the sonicwall. so now i have the ethernet handoff from my modem connected to switch port 1, the sonicwall connected to switch port 2, and I added a wifi router at the switch port 3, in order to connect the router directly to the internet without affecting my sonicwall network.
Am I correct to assume that the wireless router can be configured to act as dhcp server for wifi clients, and get internet connection from my cable modem connected to it through the switch?

My wifi router is WRT54G v3 and I have installed DD-WRT on it. I have tried both "Gateway" and "Router" Settings of the wifi router, but I can't get it to work. The clients get assigned an IP, but they can not access the internet.
It can not be a switch problem since the sonicwall kept working without issues after being moved behind the switch.
Any ideas? What would be the best way to do it?
