Hi,
I want to add a second VLAN/SSID to our existing wirless network. Here is our current setup:
SBS 2003 domain controller (currently provides DHCP for entire wired/wireless network)
Netgear WMS5316 Wireless Management System, with a single VLAN and SSID
2x Netgear WNDAP350 Access Points connected through a Netgear GS110TP PoE switch
1x Netgear WNAP320, connected through a second Netgear GS110TP PoE switch
Cisco SRP 527W modem/Firewall/Router that provides ADSL connection to the network.
Main switch is a Netgear GS748T
A couple of other smaller switches, all connected via Cat5e
I would like to add a second VLAN and SSID to the WLAN and have it share the existing ADSL connection but not be able to see anything else.
I was hoping I could configure another DHCP server in one of the devices (maybe the WMS5316) to give the second VLAN a different set of IPs.
The second WLAN will be used by visitors and/or other tenants in our building so I want to try and separate it from our main network resources.
Cheers,
Greg

I'm not familiar with that router but here is the high level view:
Make the vlan in your switches. Allow it tagged to the ports the access points are connected to
In the router add a dhcp forwarder to SBS
Add a DNS scoope in SBS for the new subnet (I suggest something that incorporates the vlan number. Like 10.10.20.x for vlan 20)
Add the ssid to your ap
