[AC Mesh Pro AP] Office network on main port and guest network on secondary

We purchased an AC Mesh Pro AP for our office along with several UAP-AC-M access points. The AC Mesh Pro AP is our wireless uplink and plugged into both of our Meraki security devices. I am trying to figure out how to configure a wireless network to use each port. We want to use the main port for the office WiFi and the secondary port for the guest WiFi. The LAN/LAN2 port selection shows that a Unifi security gateway is required, but the default network has LAN selected. This is confusing because I can connect to the staff network, but can't connect to the guest network.

 

Is a unifi security gateway required to accomplish this or am I missing something in the config?

You need to use vlan's. You can not use the prots in the way you want. They are just bridged ports.

Hello @liamelliott,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

You can only use VLANs on the ports of the UAP AC IW ( PRO ) or UAP IW HD
