Setting up dual SSID AP on 3750 switch

Hi -

I want to setup my guest net and production network on wireless with a AP541 and broadcast both SSID's. I already have the guestnet Vlan and prod vlans created with separate DHCP for guestnet. I will also be configuring a radius server for authentication on the Prod network.

My network has a ASA5510 which connects to a 6509 core switch in the server room then fiber out to all our comm closets which have 3750's in them.

I found this article on doing this which is pretty good and exactly what i want to do.


according to it, it looks like all i need to do is configure the port on the 3750 that the AP plugs into as this:

interface GigabitEthernetX/X/XX
description DefinIT-WAP Trunk
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 11
switchport mode trunk
no shutdown

my prod vlan is vlan 12 and my guest vlan is 101. Is this all thats need on the switch side?

That's it!

I would also add...

spanning-tree portfast

...to make the port come up straight away.
