Cisco 3560G / WiFi Access Point VLAN Question

Good afternoon, I've set up numerous VLAN's before and tagged ports - linked cisco switches together in a community and whatnot but this is a new scenario!

Ordinarily, ports on my Cisco 3560 are set to 'Static Access' on our native VLAN, '1' for example.

We have a WiFi Access point in our reception area and it currently gives out basic restricted internet access to guests. I want to create an additional SSID that would allow access to the private network. Whilst I understand the technicalities of this (Assigning the two VLAN's to each SSID) I do not know how to acheive this on the Cisco switch.

I know that if set to 802.11Q TRUNK, the port will accept multiple VLAN's over the port but I'm not 100% sure on the setting!

Thanks in advance. This has been bugging me for a long time!

Yes, you will set the interface to 802.1Q trunk mode. You will need to ensure that you have made the necessary configuration for management of the access point as well.

As I suspected, you do indeed need to set to 802.11Q trunk mode on the CNA software.

Thank you for your assistance :o)
