I want to separate my corporate wireless network and my guest wireless network.
Rather than use the existing infrastructure I will be connecting a wireless router/access point to the ISPs router. The ISP will then ensure that the port this is connected to can only go straight out to the internet and be blocked from accessing any of the private address ranges.
As I want to use two or more wireless devices across two rooms what would the best method and device be to do this.
My thoughts were to connect a managed switch and assign a currently unused vlan e.g. 66 to it then attach a couple of wireless access points putting them on the same vlan. The ISP will configure the default gateway on the router for that vlan which would then pass through the traffic as required. My problem with this scenario is their is nothing to provide dhcp to the clients as they try to connect.
I have not yet purchased any equipment and am open to any ideas.
