Hey guys, 

I just inherited an R710 AP with Unleashed firmware for home use as a standalone AP. Right now, I'm using an Asus router with Tomato firmware that is broadcasting two SSIDs, each on a separate VLAN (IDs 2 & 100 ,respectively). I would like to turn the wireless off and use the R710 as the AP, but having troubling figuring out how to setup two SSIDs to use with my current VLANs. Ideally, I would like to have 1 radio for each SSID and VLAN. I have one SSID (Walker) working fine. I'm a little lost on how to make this work, assuming that it's even possible. I have some screenshots that will hopefully help. Thanks.

Are you trunking the link from your Tomato Router to the Ruckus?
Basically, VLAN 2 would be untagged and VLAN100 would be tagged.

If you don't, VLAN100 will fail to pass through which is what is happening.

Since your management network and "Walker" network are the same, you shouldn't need to mess with the VLANs on the Ruckus except for where you tie the access VLAN on the SSID in your last picture.

I figured it out. I had to do tagging on vlan 1  on port 1 (where my ap is plugged in). Once I did that, I went to my SSID config for the AP and put in VLAN 100, rebooted and everything works.
