VLAN /NAT question on 7363

I am trying to use a 7363 to create 2 wireless networks linked to two wired networks but separate from each other. (In other words, behave as two totally separate APs.)

One wired connection is a local development subnet with DHCP support on it 10.0.0.x and the other (guest) is direct from the WAN Modem so needs DHCP and NAT. The development network has a home linksys router running DDWRT and basic switches only. There are maybe 3-4 machines wired to it plus a few wireless clients. The guest network has no distribution - being just one connection from the modem.

There were a couple of things about this setup that puzzled me.
a) The 7363 has only one gateway and DNS setting so I have pointed this at 10.0.0.3 and the associated DNS servers. I am hoping that any DHCP servers in the 7363 will serve this info out - is that the case?

b) I am not sure how to set up the ethernet port and WLAN so there is a NAT between them (with DHCP on its new subnet.)

With a standalone model 7363 AP, you can define 2 Local Subnets and VLANs,
and assign them to two physical Eth ports of the AP, connecting into each of your
two different matching subnet switches. Specify Bridge to WAN on the one that
matches the IP/DNS on the AP, and specify Local Subnet NAT and Route to WAN
on the other.

See the AP User Guide for reference, on the Support Portal Documents page.
