I have a customer that is looking to install a new AP and have

it accessible by their employee's and visitors.  So is there an AP out there that will allow you to setup more than one SSID and have one of the SSID's with access to the local network/internet and the other SSID set to have only access to the Internet??

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.

We used the 1131 AP.  We set up 2 different WLAN's.

Business WLAN = 172.16.x.y with WPA security

Guest WLAN = 192.168.x.y with WEP security

The AP was connected to a 3560 switch on a trunk port.  So the Guest WLAN is in a different VLAN and access was controlled through an ACL.  Guest can only access the Internet.

I'm sure some of the other Cisco AP's wil do the same thing.

Definitely can be done, the majority of Cisco's access points can do it. I'm using 1142s, 1250s, etc.  We have a Guest SSID as well as an Enterprise.  Each AP is allows connections to either WLAN.

Hi Lucas,

Is this possible we could use the WPA2 with the Guest SSID asking user for username/password that is authenticated through the same radius server where the employees accounts exists? if yes then please explain the way to configure. your help will really be appriciated.
