    In my office we have a domain network and subnet mask, we are trying to set up a unsecured wifi network for our customers to connect to and use that isn’t through our domain network which prohibits certain sites and sends all traffic through there. Is there a way to set up a router in the IT room that wouldn’t interfere with the current system but could also tap into the connection and set up a router to use some bandwidth for a wifi network. Sorry for the terrible photo.

    Can you draw a simplistic diagram of your network? That would help.

    Yes. It involves using a captive portal, wireless networking hardware which can create a guest wireless network, and some sort of security appliance (NAC network access control) which you set policy and rules on what traffic is and is not allowed.

    How would one go about setting that up? Simply buy the hardware and plug it into the current modem/router?

    It can get complex based on certain parameters you want to set up. Since this is a business and it appears there is no in house expertise to implement this properly, I suggest you all consult a wireless networking company who can procure the equipment and set it up for you.
