Wireless in SonicWALL is in a separate zone called WLAN zone,  you can use the Firewall- Access Rules to customize the restrictions.

You could create two SSID in the sonicwall, and restrict the guest SSID from accessing the LAN and allow only internet. And the corporate SSID, you can allow access to LAN.

I never setup a WLAN for a Pro 2040. Would I use a different subnet address from the DIA, separate from the Gateway itself? How easy is it to setup the WLAN?

This of course would be via the X2 port, correct? I want it separate from the LAN being that it is an open WiFi connection

The WiFi router to be installed is a Netgear AC1900 WiFi router
