D-link DWL-2600AP - Guest network

Hello,

I have a question for this access point: DWL-2600AP. I want to configure a guest network, but I could not find this option. I found that there is a option Virtual Access Point (VAP) where is configured the default network, but when I added a second Guest network, i just does not work. I checked the manual for the devices and it says that I should configure a VAP and then connect it to a RADIUS server, but with no clear instructions.

Can someone help me on this ?Does this device support guest network, and how can I configure it in some simple steps?

Thank you

I don't see that you have to do that, can you not just create a new SSID for your guest network and connect it to a separate VLAN for whatever access you plan to give them? I assume internet only.
You must then configure a way for the traffic to access the internet via your router or (better) firewall.

Radius servers are only used for authentication, you set one up with a pre-shared key, then create user names and passwords on the server. The AP will then encrypt the connection and authenticate the users.
Not necessary for a guest network, unless your server also controls access time for the connection. (Very tough to get to work, off the shelf solutions are available and preferable)
