    Ruckus Guest Access

    We have a very simple ruckus system (9 access points, mix of b/g and b/g/n). There is only 1 WLAN with WPA2 encryption. This gives access to the school network.

    I have been asked to setup a guest network. Does anyone have any instructions to set this up? It only needs to give internet access, not access to our server files etc.

    And do I need to get users to change their proxy settings? We haven't got radius (?) or anything complicated. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

    We have 3 Wifi SSIDs via our Ruckus, 1 is doing just what your current one is doing, the next is for Sixth Form and puts them to a different port on Smoothwall for a different Authentication (this is for BYOD so its SSL Authentication rather than NTLM) and then a third is for Guest Access and uses the Ruckus Portal and dumps them onto ADSL.

    This is achieved via 3 VLANs, so depending on how your Internet is proxies / available it can be done quite quickly with different VLANs

    Depends on your switching and setup, plenty of info on here if you search for VLANs
