I am having trouble getting my head round running a second wifi SSID for guest usage, one that will be on a separate subnet. Currently LAN1 is configured for the local subnet on P4, and this connects to an unmanaged switch for the main network and wifi access points for staff.

The access points are configured via a single web interface and I have created a new SSID and associated it with a VLAN ID. On the USG110, I have created a new vlan, with the same VLAN ID as above, with DHCP enabled, and set to a separate subnet.

At this point I am stuck. The new SSID is visible but I cannot get it to work.

However, I may well have got things wrong. Could anyone explain the basic steps that I should have taken, including what connects to what?

I appreciate any suggestions.

    Dear @AfterDark
    If i am right and this is your topology 



    It's really not so complicated.. 
    i hope this is clear to you 




    after that setup an ssid with the corresponding vlan


    And that should do the trick


    NOTE.
    Really important is that you have a policy control rule for the vlan to talk to the zywall, otherwise clients will not get an ip adress.
    And normally you settup a second rule where you say Vlanx to Wan allow

    But maybe the unmanged  switch can be your bottleneck here.. 
    I hope it's passes the vlan's without dropping packages

    I follow the manual but when I enable the workers wifi and the guest wifi both stop to work.

    The SSID appear and desappear constantly.
