    1) School-owned devices (internet, printers, file servers etc) MAC acl, WPA/WPA2
    2) Staff-owned personal devices (internet only) MAC acl, WPA2
    3) Guest devices (internet only) via Captive Portal, no encryption

    I was trying to build the MAC lists easily for 1).

    But now I see, should I care about guest packets being sniffed?
    You could:

    - optionally put 1, 2, and 3 on seperate VLANs and firewall at your VLAN router
    - look at access control in Ruckus to firewall devices at the access point level for the guest network (just allow DNS, DHCP and proxy access)
    - look a wireless client isolation options in Ruckus

    Are guest devices student devices? If you actually mean guest, as in stranger, then I don't imagine you'd be able to authenticate them anyway as they won't be in your database. If you mean student then you may want to generate them their own dynamic pre-shared keys so you have some ability to monitor the number of devices someone is attaching, attribute them to an individual, and revoke if appropriate. I believe you can have up to 5000 dynamic pre-shared keys on the system.

    Guests are not students but visitors to the school.
