SBS Domain with Dhcp, non domain devices...

Hello fellow geeks,

I am about to deploy an SBS 2011 Std Server in an office, but I need some clarity on something.

SBS screams like a little baby if you don't let it do DHCP, which I'm happy to let it do.

BUT....
The office is using a SonicWall TZ-105 firewall gateway router...which does NOT do wifi.

Enter the issue

I put another wifi router into the mix set with dhcp turned off, getting it from the TZ-105 currently...

no problems.... yet?

Once I put the new SBS 2011 online, I will be turning the DHCP on the TZ-105 OFF.  pretty simple so far ya with me?

So All the clients in the office get their DHCP from the domain, something they'll be a member of.....

But smart phones are NOT going to be JOINED to the domain, they just need internet access.....no connection to the domain.....

Here is the question...

Will the SBS 2011 Domain BLOCK these devices since they're not members or will it hand out simple ip's to the phones and let them pass on to the internet unhindered?

Thank you for any info fellow friends of the interwebs!

SBS doesn't care what the device is - DNS is a basic service.  at worst the DNS server won't register the devices not domain joined, but that won't matter for basic web browsing or anything else.

Though for security, the wifi should be on a separate subnet with it's own DHCP and DNS server so that you keep unsecured devices off the network...

But bottom line it won't matter.
