wireless users

My wireless users are on a vlan. But the problem is currently they can access my internal network and I'd like to block that. I am not sure how I will accomplish this. The wireless users are connected to the APs and they are communicating with a controller. I was thinking may be this is the job of the firewall. But the wireless vlan is on the core and the core is doing the routing. So I am not sure how this will be done because the traffic will be routed before it hits the fw. So I am not sure how this will be accomplished.
Below is the high level setup. The internal network is not shown but it is connecting to the L2 switch.

                                                               APs
                                                                 |
fw<-->L3 WAN switch<-->core1<-->L2 switch<-->Meru controller
                              |------->core2<------|    
                                                                     

Thanks

I'm assuming this wireless is for guests?  Otherwise, I do not understand why you would allow your users to connect wirelessly but not access the network.

If it is for guests, then you need to put the AP on a guest VLAN that is segregated from the internal network.

Sorry. Yes it is the wireless guest users and it is in vlan 50. The APs are communicating with the controller at layer 2. You don't configure VLAN on the APs.

I suppose though I should say that gsmartin's solution is a completely valid one :-)
