Creation of Guest Wifi in MX with Unifi APs

Creation of Guest Wifi in MX with Unifi APs

So I am a little stuck because my company wants to create a guest wifi that is separate from the main network. We have a lot of visitors that come in & out of the building so we want to provide a generally basic & separate connection for them. The company has the Meraki MX64 but we DO NOT own the Meraki Wireless. Instead we bought about 10 Unifi Access Points & use them instead for wireless purposes. Supposedly we do not need to buy the MS & can use the unifi APs.

 

I know I need to created a 2nd VLAN for the guest traffic but that is about as far as I get. Please help?

Kind of a big deal

The MX can do splash pages.  So yes, create a second VLAN.  Create an SSID on your Unify's and bridge to this VLAN, and then create the splash page on the MX.

Remember to create firewall rules on the MX to block routing between the guest vlan/subnet and your normal subnet(s).

 

Follow "Create Firewall Rules to Block Inter-VLAN Traffic" here.
