How to setup an Cisco Aironet 1142 WAP for a guest network

We have about 12 CIsco aironet WAP in our network. All bridged together.
DHCP on the server is running out of IP addresses.
IS there a way to set a guest SSID on the WAP and set a different IP range? its not a router so I'm guessing no.

I'm thinking that I would have to setup another router in the server room and add another switch and place new WAP's for external Internet for the guests?

The APs support 802.1Q and multiple SSIDs.  If your switches also support 802.1Q you could create a new VLAN on the switch, add a new SSID to the AP and attach it to a new VLAN on the APs.

The easiest way to get it to work then would be to put a new router (with DHCP server) on that VLAN and connect it directly to your internet circuit.
