I want to set up internet guest access with my wap321. No matter what I do the guest can see my whole network. Not sure what your definition of guest access is but letting them brows around my assets is not mine. I have a cheap Linksys router at home and that guest access works the way I want this AP to do. I'm sure that I'm doing something wrong here but this AP was advertised easy to use and full of wizards. No wizards for guest access... In fact there is only one wizard by the way, i.e. basic set up. Since I'm here asking, not easy as well.
My network includes the wap321, sg200-26p switch and the rv042g router.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you for contacting Cisco Small Business forum.

I am very sorry that you have this problem and thank you for describing your network topology that was most helpful.
I would like to point out that RV042G supports only port based vlan. Which means that if you have two vlans configured on AP and on a switch, the vlans will pass through all way to the router interface. But once it gets to the router interface, router will only have traffic for the vlan that you have router port configured for.
Hope that explains the issue.
Also, here is the admin guides for the RV042G and WAP321 if you need one for your future configurations:

Bummer. I was going to buy a rv220w but then I read the reviews. What router would have been a better choice?
Also I take it there is no way to hook up two ports from the rv042g to the switch and have that work? The dhcp is the problem with that, right?
Your RV042 is only listens for the VLAN that you specified on that port. By default it is vlan 1.
You can try our newly released RV180 router. You can purchase it as a wireless model if you want to. Here is the admin guide for it:
With this one, you will be able to do add multiple vlans to same port.
Hope that helps.

There IS no problem with that...you can totally do that. Use tagged membership for the VLAN of interest for the switch ports that connect to the router. The WAP321 trunks all VLANs tagged to a single switch port. The switch segments the traffic at Level 2. The router only listens for desired VLAN traffic on each port connected to the switch.
This is quite an old topic however I'm having a similar question so it seems right to bring it back up.
We currently have the following network toplogy:
* Router provided by the fiber/cable company
* SF200-24P 24-Port 10/100 PoE Smart Switch as our main switch
* SF302-08P 8-Port 10/100 PoE Managed Switch as a secondary switch in our second building
* Cisco WAP321 (4 times) for our wireless
We would like to implement a guest network to separate it from our production network. Could you advice was (small enterprise) router we would need? Also, will it be possible to establish 2 entirely separate networks using VLans and these components?
