I have ordered an AP that supports VLAN tagging. It will provide two SSIDs. This will be plugged into a router connected to a modem.

What I need is for both SSIDs to communicate with the internet, but not each other. There will be nothing connected to the router except the AP and cable modem.

The equipment I am using:

http://www.cradlepoint.com/support/legacy/mbr1000

Unlike my other recent post, I have no experience with VLAN tagging. If someone could tell me what I need to get this to work (or if VLAN tagging is even needed) I would appreciate it.

Thanks for reading all this!

The Cradlepoint doesn't seem to support IEEE 802.1Q (VLAN tagging) or the ability to do virtual routing interfaces.

No it doesn't, and I am concerned that traffic from both SSIDs would be able to communicate with each other through the router.

If I can't keep the two SSID's isolated using the existing equipment, I may need to grab a VLAN switch and the MBR95. Additional expenses I wasn't planning on, but that's how things go.
