Hi all,

I'm setting up a Sonicwall TZ105W in a small office. I've been trying to set up a second SSID for guests, with a different subnet (or the same subnet but with web access only, no LAN access). Is it even possible to do this without any extra devices? If it is, can anyone give me the steps?

I had already found and tried those two solutions but neither worked.  I'll give them another go.

The KB article above, found by Senthil Kumar, results in the "hotel style" system where the user is directed to a webpage where they 'sign up', are given a username and choose a password for a specific period.  There are many situations where this would be useful, but what I was looking for was simply a second SSID with a single password which would place the user on a subnet separate to the office network and give him only internet access.  This is the actual solution which worked for me:

The KB article I found produced the exact result I required.  The other KB article is perfect for situations where you want guest users to be directed to a web page where they sign up, accept terms and conditions, etc., as is standard in many hotels, etc.
