This should be easier.... dual ssid setup

How would a SR2024P need to be configured for this to work?


My router has primary LAN and a 2nd LAN port/interface for VLAN 1002 (guest network).


Each interface has its own IP scheme and DHCP range.


Port 1 on our router’s LAN side goes to port 24 on SR2024P.

Port 2 on our router’s LAN side (VLAN 1002) goes to port 23 on SR2024P.


We have 3 Aerohive WAPs...  AP121s. They are connected to SR2024P ports 1-3.


Trying to have business SSID attached to primary lan and a 2nd guest SSID linked to VLAN 1002.


Can you tell me how I need to configure the switch ports (access/trunk, etc) and what if any specific configurations I need to use for the WAPs?

The switchports connecting the APs should be set to trunking. Make sure you have them configured and allowed, and have the same native vlan.


Then assign the VLANs to your SSIDs. 

I also recommend using VLAN probe which is available in HM Classic and now NG. Reach out if you need more info or NG screenshots and good luck, you're on the right track.
