It depends on if fios wireless router is able to tag vlans and also able to support muliple SSID's.  

Otherwise, you will need seperate wireless router connected to guest VLAN (you need to create another VLAN for the guests) and assign default route to fios router.

ok, I see that it can tag vlans and it will only support just 1 ssid which is all that matters to me. My other question is that it is coax tied to the television and I would like to be able to keep the tv. can this be accomplished? or would I need to have it converted from coax to ethernet? or be able to use both?

There should be ethernet ports behind the wireless router.

All you have to do is connect one of the ethernet ports to your switch using a patch cable.

If you need setup seperate wireless access for the guest, you need multi-SSID device.

ok here is my setup on the 3550 switch:

vlan 20
name - guest wireless

vlan 25
name- users

I am using router on a stick and wanted to know could I use the verizon actiontec to give out LAN DHCP? and would it be able to issue give out ip addresses to those who access the guest wireless?

I want to make sure so that I don't configure DHCP from my cisco 3825.

I'm not sure how your wireless router will determine which IP to give out, guest vlan IP or users vlan IP if you are only using one SSID.  Normally, you create two SSID, one for users and one for guest, hen you assign DHCP scope per SSID.

If your wireless only support one SSID, my suggestion was to buy one more wireless router and plug it into guest VLAN on the switch and have the guest connect to the new router.
