How to force a computer to connect to a guest network if it is not a member of the domain

Hello, Is there a way I can enforce the following request with my existing windows infrastructure alongside my Cisco network infrastructure.

- If a computer/laptop is connected to the network via LAN port and does not belong to the domain, connect it to the guest network.

Yes, you can use the guest VLAN feature on your switches, but that requires 802.1x to be deployed across the network.

So how will 802.1x tie in with a non-member computer to force it on to a guest network?

Is this all done at the network level? Or will there need to be some configurations on the active directory side?
