Segragate WIFI guest Access Points with 2 SSID's
Posted on 2013-05-30
I have been asked to setup a free wireless network at work for our customers.
The boss wants it open to the customers, but i'm a little gunshy on having that on the same address scheme as our local network.
I've purchased 4 Motorola AP6532 units which have been pre-configured with 2 SSID's. 1 for the guest (which is open) & 1 for the Business (which is secured PSK). The AP's have a static IP address in the same range as the local network.
I have a HP 2620 Poe switch & a draytek router. The AP's are Poe from the switch (currently ports 21-24).
What i would like to do, if it's possible, is have the guest SSID on a different range to everything else. E.g 192.168.1/24.
That would leave the local network & SSID 2 (business use) on the same subnet, with internet access etc.
I'm a little confused how i would achieve this when the SSID's are on the AP's. If i have to assign an IP to the AP's, will the guest wifi network be able to access the internet as required?
Is this at all possible?
