Do you already have a Wireless connection for internal users.

You need to have a Wireless AP that supports Multiple SSID. and If the Wireless is connected via switch, the switchport has to support trunk because you will route separate traffic using VLANs.

If you use a multi-port Wireless LAN controller you don't need to use VLANs.  This may be relevant to you if you use unmanaged switches in a relatively small network.

For example, the Cisco 2504 WLC can terminate internal traffic on Port1, and send Guest traffic out of Port2 directly to a separate router.  The APs tunnel all traffic to the WLC, then the WLC determines which port to send traffic out of.

Multiple SSID's on separate VLAN's with ACL (access control lists) in place on switching infrastructure and routers to prohibit guest traffic from ever accessing standard LAN traffic.  

What model AP ,Network switches,  Internet router, do you have?

Personally I worked on Cisco and SonicWALL, there are many APs out there which support multiple SSID.

If you have a spare AP, use that for solely for Guest SSID.

Which router are you using currently?
