I don't see how your the person to 'solve' this problem, when you don't have access to the tools needed to solve it? Sounds like if the business really wants this restriction in place (and I agree it's not a bad idea) then the company that controls the switch and router's is the one to do it. Honestly, it sounds like the IP phone vendor should be fired for incompetence - but hey.

You might mitigate people connecting to the Internal network by providing an alternative, free WiFi off a separate public IP or separate ISP connection, and then get management to agree on a penalty/disciplinary action for those found connecting to the internal network - but good luck policing that.
