|Re: [PLUG] dual networking question|
Hacky way of doing it would be to plug one linksys into the internet directly, which would be your 'public' network, then plug another linksys into the back of that (using the second linksys' internet port), although you end up with double NAT which might break a few things.
I know you can easily do this with Cisco ASA firewalls, but not sure about low-end stuff - Netgear have some firewall/routers which support VLANs/subnets/etc, plus you can actually have multiple wireless SSIDs on a single device which drop users on different VLANs so you don't have to mess around with non-overlapping channels and stuff. FVS318N is a netgear product I know works - got one here (although I don't use it much).

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I'm meeting Monday morning with an IT consultant to discuss setting up dual wireless networks in our church. One will be staff only and will have access to the network resources (printer, shared drives, etc. as well as the Internet.) The other will be public access and only have access to the Internet. The consultant has said that we'll need a second connection to the Internet (currently we have Comcast.) I think he's wrong. I think we can have two separate networks with different ip address ranges and the server (Windows Server 2008) will only allow one of those ranges to have access to the network resources. Everybody would have access to the Internet. My idea is that the staff network would be 192.168.1.x and the public network would be 192.168.100.x. The staff wireless network would be the same ip range as the Ethernet network in the office. Am I right? Can this be done this way? Maybe we'll need two routers connected to the Comcast modem or configure the existing router (Linksys IIRC) to handle two network ip ranges?
