Best practice for two differing encryption types

I'm using a Aironet 1232g and I want to use WPA2-PSK. I have the XP clients connected appropriately (via WPA2-AES CCMP), however I also have a Ricoh Digital Sender (copier) that only supports WEP. What is the best security practice in this scenario? Can I enable two SSID's one with WPA2-PSK and the other with WEP? If so, do I need to establish a VLAN on the AP? Any help is appreciated.

Yes- you can enable two SSID's one with WPA2-PSK and the other with WEP, but WEP having some vulnerability.

Hi Scott,

your thougts are right.

You have to establish 2 seperate VLANs on the AP. In the "encryption Manager" you setup the VLAN to encryption type association.

Then you need to define the VLANs to SSIDs in the "SSID Manager".

If you have a WDS running setup the "Server groups" in the WDS Section of "Wireless Services"

Do not forget to change the switchport (where the AP is connected to) to trunking mode.

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

Frank
