Separating wireless in different subnet

My network is as follows

Modem > router with  one wan port, one LAN port> switch

I want to separate my wireless from my main network. Right now I'm using two unfi ap's

Can this be done with only one LAN port? If so how?

Thank you

Brock

  • Brock,

    where is the XG located?

    If you use Sophos AP or XG "w" model you can have 8 different SSID and have all of them separated.

    It's located in my home. It's a mini pc I'm using for the sophos xg. It's not a sophos appliance.

    Thank you for the help

    Brock,

    you can implement VLAN on XG LAN interface, but you need a switch that is capable of managing VLAN. In this way, you can create another LAN inside XG with the IP used by unifi AP and separate the users.

    If you have multiple NIC on your XG (at least 3) you can use the third NIC as an additional LAN (with another IP/Subnet address) and manage the Wi-fi users separately.

    Regards

    This is the switch I'm using

    Will that work for vlan on LAN . I only have one LAN port

    Thank you again

    Brock,

    this is an unmanaged switch, so no VLAN capable.
