Wireless Access Point

By prajeethpj1 ·
Hi Guys!..

This is prajeeth frm dubai. I'm not much proficient in wireless networking. I have a question now.

I work for a travel company and my owner also a internet cafe besides our office. We r connected to the internet thru DSL 512K in Wingate server and all clients accessing internet thru it. We also connected our internet cafe 3 pc's thru this internet DSL connection. Everything works fine.

But now Wireless demand in accessing internet is more. I gave a solution to my boss saying the below details.

1. buy 1 wireless access point SMC or US-robotics and connect the network points to it
2. configure the SSID in wireless accesspoint in all wireless clients and internet works fine.
3. my doubt is that when I put one network connection in SMC 7804WBRA and that this model has firewall features - is it possible for me separate my private frm public - I mean can I create private and public network thus enabling customers only 2 use internet not fiddling around our server or any clients. will this work or pls provide me a costeffective solution>.. Should I have to go for separate router and one dsl Line for internet cafe alone. I think that would increase all our costs. Guys kindly advise and I would b happy if u guys could send me advisable solution in this regard.

Thanks and regards

For what you describe I would think of VDMZ(Virtual De-Militarised Zone)
If the router you purchase has such feature, you can configure your PCs in two different networks of which one is open to public access while the other is private, etc.

So no need to buy another router.

Have a look at the internal links in the one below for background info:

Hope this helps.
