Time Capsule and Extending guest network to a guest room

So I've read some posts about the guest network on the TC (Time Capsule) and Airport Express using Vlan id 1003. I have a TC as main router and I would like to let the managed switch allow one of the ports on the guest network and then wired into a wall panel for a guest room in my house so they can plug in since my house is ethernet port ready.

TC > Switch > Wall Panel > Room

 

Or do I have to have the TC in bridge mode and under another vlan capable router?

 

I'm also using a GS105E as the switch.

Model: GS105Ev2|ProSafe Plus 5 ports switch, GS305E|5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switch

Figured it out. You can delete post. It was too simple.

Nice find these TC and AE make use of an (undocumented) VLAN 1003 tagged for the guest network. This makes it indeed easy to extend the guest network e.g. to other industry standard (small business type) wireless access points (supporting SSID VLAN tagging of course).
