I need to create a "Guest" WLAN network in an existing network. What I need is a Wi-Fi subnet which can only surf the internet and things like that but I won't discuss this here. What I need to know is how can I implement a new "virtual" subnet into an existing network.
Let's say that I have my "main" network which is
192.168.1.0/24 and I'd like to create a new range of IPs on
My router is
192.168.1.1 and my Wi-Fi AP is at
192.168.1.2; Wi-Fi clients would obviously go on the
192.168.2.0/24 subnet. I thought that I could make my AP a DHCP server for the
192.168.2.0/24 subnet and then doing a NETMAP (1:1) from the
192.168.2.0/24 to the
192.168.1.0/24 addresses and a virtual interface on my router to make it act as a bridge between the
192.168.1.0/24 and the
192.168.2.0/24 net but this is a very very rough solution.
Any ideas? What about
VLANs? (I never used one)
