How to run a guest network with a Windows Server as DHCP?

ndore
I got a very small domain network running of a Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation and we get to a point we would need a wireless network for our guests to be able to surf the Internet. I don't want to just enable the wireless access point and everybody with the password for the wifi being able to look around in my network.

I would like to be guided in which way to look. I've seen a lot of post about NPS but I don't quite understand what I need to do.

My DNS, DHCP is running off my AD and a little D-Link router is my gateway.

Thanks for any advice

Do not enable the WiFi to Ethernet Bridging in the WiFi Device and it will remain separate to the Wired LAN.

Correct me but I didn't understand properly but if I turn on the wireless of my gateway router, the wifi client will get automaticly without any configuration from Windows Server DHCP an IP from a different subnet?

Yes that is what happens by default on most new WiFi Access Points.

You need to manually enter the WiFi Access Points Setup and enable Bridging between the Wired and Wireless LAN's.

Have a look at the WatchGuard XTM 2-series. These are easy to configure firewalls with the posibility to have a guest vlan which has only access to the WAN.
