VLAN Setup and Config

New to the world of VLAN's.  We are installing Aruba wireless using IAP-105 access points.  We have the ability to setup a guest SSID and assign that SSID to a VLAN.  Right now we are testing this with a Dell Powerconnect 2824 switch.

We want to put the Guest SSID on a VLAN within it's own subnet separate of our business network and tie that to a router connected to a different Internet connection.  The router will function as DHCP for that VLAN.

We have created a separate VLAN on the switch and the Guest SSID on the access point.  Hooked the router up to the switch port configured with that VLAN, but unable to obtain an address or even access it when assigning a static address.

What are we missing?  A little confused with tagging and untagging.

The Aruba AP is tied to our business network with it's own Internet connection.  In order to have all traffice for the Guest SSID router to another Internet connection we have to create the VLAN.

Make sure the VLAN is tagged, put the ports with the router and the aruba in Trunk mode.
