Forcing certain WLAN traffic out certain ZD ports?

Using a ZD1100, I would like to tunnel guest traffic back to the ZD and force it out one of the ports that will be connected only to the Internet modem. The other port will be connected to the network switches, but the customer wants to make sure that the guest WLAN traffic is tunneled and then only able to go out the specific physical port on the ZD that goes directly to the modem. Is this possible? If so, how?

I had a customer a while back that wanted to do this too, in fact they did it and thought they solved whatever they wanted to solve but they didn't. Plu that's a really bad way to go about this. Use switches that support 802.1Q, tag traffic on WLANs and avoid using tunneling on 1100 if you can, and here you can.

I don't just because a customer tells you to do something that doesn't mean you need to do it. Tell them they're wrong on this. There are far better and easier ways to solve this.

While I agree with you, and that is our typical deployment methodology, the customer still wants to do it this way.
Can anyone give any instruction on how to force guest traffic out of a specific physical port on the ZD1100?

Not helpful. If you have instructions for how to do this, please share them. While it isn't ideal, I still need to do this.
