Additional Wireless SSID

I have an rv220w router with one SSID and the product says I can add up to 4 additional wireless ssid ie the router is protected with wpa but we have guests that would like to connect to the internet while working in our building . I would like to add a guest SSID with wep security that I could give Clients. The problem I run into is every time I add the Guest  ssid the wireless printers that are attached to the routers' main ssid quit working. I noticed that when the rounter was orginally set up the main SSID has IP addresses from 100 to 255 allocated. Do I need to limit the IP addresses in the Main SSID to a smaller number so that the Guest SSID can use the remaining  addresses. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Tom,

Thank you for posting. You should create a second VLAN for the second SSID so that the IP addresses assigned to your guests are in a different subnet than your Main SSID. This will keep the guest devices from accessing the main devices.

Tom,

Please make sure the routers firmware is up-to-date, since you are having trouble when adding second SSID (printers stop working when adding second SSID)

Thanks,

Jasbryan
