Open Guest wifi on Trapeze MX800R?

‎09-26-2013 09:05 AM

My school had a trapeze wifi controller with 20 APs installed a few years back.  We have out grown our 500 IPs and I have read opening up the IP range will slow the network.  I think it is best to seperate the wifi clients to Internal and Guest networks. I am able to create a VLAN in the MX800R assign the SSID a inside IP and enable DHCP, so guests get a sepearate IP range addresses but they dont show a gateway.  Most of our switches do not support VLANs but all of the switches connecting APs to the controller do.  Would I need to make config changes on all switches or is this VLAN only important on the controller?  How can I get the controller to push out the proper gateway?  If I am going about this incorrectly or there is a better way, please advise.

You have to configure the DHCP server to hand out the DGW:

set interface vlanid ip dhcp-server [enable | disable] [start ip-addr1 stop ip-addr2] [dns-domain domain-name] [primary-dns ip-addr [secondary-dns ip-addr]] [default-router gateway]
If you're not using local-switching, the VLAN only has to be at the controller.
