    DHCP scope for wireless guest devices

    Hi All,

    I've got a Netgear managed wireless in school and have setup an 'Open Access' SSID.

    Is there a way that I can create a DHCP scope for these Guest devices that are on the network? - ie. Non Domain devices
    My idea is to then allow the IP range through our TMG server which will hopefully act transparently so that guest users don't have to configure proxy etc to gain internet access.

    OR is there a better way of doing this?

    Current Setup is 2008R2 with TMG2011 and Netgear WFS709TP wireless.

    Another idea was to setup a VLAN for the open access, create a new DHCP server and TMG?

    Hi Adam, think you answered your own question! yes get a seperate VLAN for the guest WLAN, you will have no security issues then.

    Hi Adam,

    You are almost there . for security reason i suggest see if you can issue guest passes from the wireless controller.
