SRP527W configuring guest WiFi

I recently bought a Cisco SRP527W and I'm trying to setup a second wireless network for guests.

I created a "guest" VLAN and I assigned the "guest" SSID which I have created.

I created a "guest" DHCP server and assigned it to the "guest" VLAN.

The "guest" SSID is set to broadcast and has WPA2 Personal (TKIP+AES) authentication.

These are exactly the same settings I have for the "non-guest" WiFi.

However, I can't get my clients to connect to the network. The "guest" WiFi is visible and clients are prompted to enter the password but after that they end up with an APIPA address.

When I move the "guest" SSID to VLAN1 (along with all the other networks) then it works absolutely fine.

I was just wondering if I'm simply missing something in the configuration ..

The device is running the latest firmware (1.01.24 (003) September 7, 2011)

DHCP server has DNS Proxy setting enabled and WAN Interface configured as "Default Route" (have basically replicated the same settings as VLAN1)

Any ideas/suggestions would really help..

SRP527W configuring guest WiFi

Hello Vasilios,

If you set a static IP on the computer while connected to the guest wireless network are you able to access the network and internet? If you are able to access the network and internet that points to a DHCP server configuration issue.

Let me know.
