Cisco WRV210 Wireless Router Question

Specs: Windows XP, 2 GB
I have a business with a WRV210 Cisco Business Router. I am trying to setup a guest network for my customers. Like a free wi-fi hot spot. Under the SSID's, there are SSID1, SSID2, SSID3, SSID4. Now, If I setup a "Guest" wireless SSID on SSID2, will this compromise my network if someone wanted to get in to seeing my file? Or is this totally seperate from my network? I am unsure if I should. How would I keep my Guest network seperate from my business? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

The best way is to pay for a separate connection from the ISP. If that can't be done for money reasons, the next best thing is to setup subnets or VLANs.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

I also have a WRV210 router and would like to setup a guest wireless network. The problem is that I'm having trouble separating that network from the VPN access that we also have setup on that router. Is there a way to separate wireless from the VPN while still granting internet access?

For the VPN issues, put your router on a different subnet than the VPN.

For the other person trying to secure it, the best way is to have to another Wireless Access Points (WAPs). One hooked inside your NAT and the other hooked into your DMZ.

WRV210 has VLAN function, you can isolate SSID2. For detail, pls see the manual.
