Asus RT-AC68U Guest Network configuration

Hey Experts,

I just had this Asus RT-AC68U and told to make it work at a customer site.  They're current setup:

Sonicwall Firewall:
 -plugs into a LAN port on the firewall

They want a guest network configured with only Internet access and no access to the server.  I upgraded the firmware on the latest from the Asus site.  I'm not that familiar with these devices and I'm struggling to make it work.  I can get the wireless up and running, but it seems like every configuration I try (Router mode, Access Point mode) ends with the guests able to ping the server.

Any suggestions would be great appreciated.

The solution to your problem should be 2 VLAN's one for your network environment with the server and the other for your guest. When i go trough the specifications of the ASUS RT-AC68U
There is no VLAN capability mentioned on the site. Can you double check it in your configuration. Let me know if you need more info or help.

Hi Davy,

I've checked the online manual and I can't find an option for VLANs.  I'll keep looking, but do you have any other suggestions?

Look for an Access point that can manage and configure VLAN's Linksys is not expensive for example.

Hi Davy,

I ended up using a second wireless access point and creating a DMZ port on our firewall.  This way all of the guest traffic is on the outside of the firewall.

Thanks for your input.
