Multi ISP setup and available options

Hello,

My company is expanding a bit and getting some extra access points like R710.
Main idea is that we have 2 ISP one used by guest wifi AP's and another one is internal network IP used bu other AP's. We are planning to get some extra AP's R710 and run guest & internal wifi on one AP. If that is possible?
Some more details:
Internal network will get IP from DHCP server
Guest network will get IP from AP DHCP server
Both networks is totally segregated



If that is configurable there is second challenge. On the guest wifi network we have some users using PPTP VPN and Ruckus AP in standalone mode can support only one client at the same time, if we would get a zonedirector 1200 would that be the able to help us and still keep existing configuration?

Many thanks,
Zee

your plan to have internal Wifi to use ISP 1 and guest WiFi to use ISP 2 is not doable as AP's ethernets port are in bridged mode and what is possible that you can use "one ISP" in total and configure two WLAN's. 1) internal wifi to use your internal network DHCP and 2) guest wifi to use AP dhcp. You need this part..

If you still want to try this then you need to have L3 managed switch or firewall which can let you make VLAN and then you can tag the created VLAN on respective WLAN's which will segment your network in a way you have thought.

In simple words, there is work to do and you can achieve this without controller..

Thank you very much, it helped a lot! 

So 2 ports on the AP has not much of help for me because VLAN ca nbe done with just one port. Would I be able to trunk 2 ports to double the bandwidth at least?

Thanks
