✔ Best Answer
You'll need a second router that's wireless capable to accomplish this.

For information on how to set this up, click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second Router to your LAN

You'll want to use the scenario where you have separate subnets and interconnect the two routers using the "LAN port to WAN port" scenario.

It's worth noting, you'll want to have the wireless router connected directly to the internet and the private LAN router connected to it. Setup this way it prevents the wireless LAN from accessing the private wired LAN.

Or put in a vlan switch and connect a ap or router as a ap to vlan2 whereas everything else is in vlan1 with the port connecting to the internet has both vlans.

Otherwise you have to make the main router the guest router and off it the other router you have your machines/access behind it.
