I wanted to help him out by doing the installation, but I'm concerned about the security of the wireless network. I wanted to install it in such a way that the wireless clients don't have access to the LAN computers. I've read a couple things, but I'm unsure of which way to go.
One person said to connect the uplink port on Linksys wireless router to a LAN port on the switch. Then told me to enable DHCP on the Linksys and use a different range of IP addresses and a separate subnet than the current router is handling. So for example, if the LAN is 192.168.1.X and 255.255.255.0, use 10.1.10.X and 255.255.0.0. I was told that since I'm attached to a LAN port on the switch, there won't be any problems having 2 DHCP servers on the network. Is that correct, and will it work?
I've also read about VLAN's, but can't seem to find much information on them.
Oh, I almost forgot. The wireless will be used exclusively for guest access, as all of the employees use wired workstations.
Thanks for your help!
