Guest VLAN configuration on D-Link DAP-2553

I have a DAP-2553 AP. I have configured the Primary SSID which runs on my default network. I am trying to add a second SSID for guests to use that only gives them access to the Internet. I would like this SSID to use VLAN 2 which I have defined on my firewall. The firewall provides DHCP. I am using a Cisco switch and have configured the AP port and the firewall port as a trunk port. If I configure a port for VLAN 2 and plug a PC into it, it pulls an IP address and can get out to the Internet without issue.

When I connect to my secondary SSID I do not pull an IP address. If I hard code an IP and connect to the secondary SSID I can not reach the firewall.

I am confused when it comes to tag, untag, and PVID.  Here are the screens I can use to modify the VLAN memberships. BTW - The defualt VLAN 1 works fine.

Here are the configuration screens. Can someone tell me what needs to be changed?

    I got this working. I changed the port list to

    Posr list 2
    And then I removed security and added it back. I'm not sure what the issue was. I could have been something with the passphrase.
