  • route wireless traffic to diffrent router

    I have a network in a 3 story office building.
    Each floor is connected to a switch.
    The 3 switches are connected to the main switch and from
    there to a router, which functions as DHCP.
    An access point is connected to the switch on each floor.
    The wireless access is mostly for visitors.

    We would like to add a dedicated internet line+router just for the wireless
    traffic, is there a way to route only the wireless traffic to the second router
    without adding new switches on each floor, e.g using the existing equipment?

    I attached a topology sketch

    Thanks,
    Joel

    BTW, all clients should get IPs from DHCP

    Are your switches managed and do they support VLANs?

      Unfortunately not, standard 24 port D-link switches

        From the router interface, do you have any way to identify who's using wired connections and who's using wireless connections (e.g. different IP range)? If so, then you should be able to set up the appropriate routing tables to send them to the right routers to get out.
