Guest use of a Aironet 1131AG Access Point

Unanswered Question
Mar 19th, 2009

I have 2 WLAN's using (mostly) D-Link products - one is for staff only and the other is for guests, and is totally separate from our LAN.

I'm disappointed with D-Link and want to change-over to all-Cisco AP's. I'm fairly satisfied with the 1131 and wish to build on it.

The manual mentions a guest SSID, but I have reservations about network security. (I am thinking of using a single WLAN with multiple SSID's to handle the staff and guests.) What is the opinion on this forum on this issue? (I'm very new to Cisco and classify myself as little more than a beginner with wireless in general.)
