As the title suggests, I need a SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD explanation of how to create a SECOND SSID on a Sonicwall TZ 100/105 that will allow individuals to have INTERNET ONLY access via WIRELESS.  This access would be used by smartphones, and possibly IPADS at my customers business location.   We DO NOT want this wireless network to have access to my clients WIRED LAN.

I understand the WIRELESS GUEST SERVICES option, but do not want guests to get a LOGIN PAGE.  I just want another SSID out there (WPA2 encryption preferred) that GUESTS can connect to.

Additionally I'd like to throttle the bandwidth this wireless SSID so that it cannot consume the entire available internet bandwidth.

How about just creating another SSID with a different subnet, then using firewall rules to block traffic into your Wifi and wired networks... therefore only allowing it to go out the internet.

I don't know if there is any, I was just thinking of a work around.

What about doing this on the DMZ, and disabling WGS?.. try it out.

This is exactly what I'm looking for.  Sometimes I cant find sonicwall documentation specific to what I'm trying to do with google, etc....And their tech support...lets just say I'm not interested in speaking to first level techs.  They know less than I do.

Thanks for your help....

Funny thing...I didnt get alot of responses on this one, just yours....considering how many of these there are out there, you'd think more would have responded.
