Currently I have two seperate internet connections , one is for corporate and one is for Guest .

guest is using Linksys router with POE WAN port to connect and using ISP DNS settings .
Some small office type routers have an option built in to easily configure a guest wireless network to do exactly what you are looking for. What model routers are the two you have?

Well my scenario is bit different from the point that my corporate network invloves proxy servers and , antivirus servers and then all traffic has to pass through the proxy server .

for Guest network , we have linksys small to medium based router which is physically different than the above system and both network have seperate switches and seperate Access points .

Also the clients wich connect to corporate Wifi uses corproate internet , and Wifi authentication is done on the bases of AD User . you can only authenticate Corporate Wifi , if you are AD user , but in Guest Network users should be able to connect with some key , which is not the case here .
So its bit complex thing to manage and integrate .

well , in my case , the guest users are permenent compliyees with their handheld devices , like mobiles , ipad , and tablets .  so once they get the passcode , then they want it for good time . they can not change the password every week even .

the whole problem is to change the mechansim in which guest network can be isolated with Corporate LAN and the key can not be used in Corporate network .

above is a good idea , i would try to see how it can fix up my problem .
