Since you are using VLANs and want different IP ranges for different access 
privileges, I would suggest you use Q-Trunks if your network equipment 
permits. Build a DHCP scope for each VLAN address range, then assign the 
gateway and helper address to each virtual interface of the trunks on your 
router. This has nothing to do with RADIUS and should be covered in your 
router, switch and access point manuals.
