Guest WLAN access on MSM710

We have an MSM710 setup with our main network and also a guest LAN for internet access. The guest LAN is a basic netgear router off of the internet port. I have configured DHCP to be issued to the client data tunnel and a scope configured on the guest VSC. This all works OK but the users have to authenticate via an HTML form to use the internet.
Is there a way in which this can be avoided so that they just connect to the VSC with a WPA passphrase and have unrestricted internet access?
If you untick the authentication option the DHCP scope settings disappear. I have tried just selecting the 'Access Control/Identify stations based on IP' but this doesnt work.

Re: Guest WLAN access on MSM710

have you tried unchacking the 'HTML-based user logins' option?

Re: Guest WLAN access on MSM710

Usually, we would do that by having all client traffic on the LAN side of the MSM710, using a VLAN switch to isolate guest traffic (going to any 3rd party Access Point) from your other office traffic. Then use the default bandwidth settings in the VSC to limit guest bandwidth to avoid them using it all up. Uncheck the HTML authentication in the VSC and have the guest VLAN associated with the guest VSC. Hope that helps. http://prowifi.net
