I understand - yes I've googled quite a bit and haven't found anything specific to guest lans, or anyone on forums trying what I'm doing (surprisingly). It's all just about guest wifis out there.

Is there a specific feature I need to make sure the switch has (as well as the VLANS of course). Also would this completely isolate it from the rest of the network, so if a guest wants to do anything dodgy ie sniff the network and he's on this specific VLAN, he can't pick up anything from the main private network?
