I'm trying to setup a free WiFi network for our clients. This wireless router would be installed in the sales office across the street.
We have a gigabit connection between the two buildings; at one end is the firewall (Kerio Control 8.3.1), at the other end, there is a switch. The wifi router would be connected to this switch.
If I'm not wrong I should be able to setup a VLAN to control the access our clients have, separate them from our network and cap the bandwidth they can use. I have already read Configuring VLANs instructions at Kerio kb (kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-control/server-configuration-ker io-control/configuring-vlans-1229.html), but I have a few questions regarding how it would work, and as there are lots of other computers which should be able to connect to Internet, our servers etc., I'd like to make as few mistakes as possible, since I don't have the possibility to create a testing environment now, I would be setting this up on the production firewall.
Some of the doubts I have are: if I create this VLAN, should I create another one for the rest of our company? If so, I guess it won't work automagically. Does it mean I may lose connection until I can thoroughly configure all the VLANs.
Also, after I create the VLAN, how do I link the WiFi router (I have already assigned it a fixed IP) to that VLAN? Btw, the router TP-Link WDR3500.
If you have any tips or if you think that I'm not doing it right this way, I'll appreciate any suggestions.

First of all. Every Network device in your network must support VLAN.
Most wireless routers aren't supporting VLAN. There are Access Points who support VLAN's in combination with Multi SSID's.
So in your case it will not work.
