Using second port on WLC2112 for alternate path

I have a special situation that I am trying to resolve. For one of my customers they have a wireless guest network that is directly connected to a Comcast connection outside of their network. What they want to do is make the guest network available on all their AP's instead of just the one and add this last AP to the WLC.

Would I be able to connect one of the unused ports to the Comcast router and confiured the WLAN and interface to use this port for the guest newtwork and keep it away from the rest of the network?

Tahequivoice,

Yes, you would mark that interface (the guest one) with the port number on the WLC ip it and off you go. As wifi traffic comes into the WLC the WLC will place that traffic on that wlc port which is connected to the comcast line.

Piggy backing on George,

     You can also mark that interface as VLAN 0 untagged, so that you aren't sending tagged traffic to the comcast modem.
