VaKo Posted July 9, 2006 Share Posted July 9, 2006 A lot of people want to lock out wifi access completely, ie have no one be able to access it apart from trusted computers. But after moving house, and spending 3 days looking for a unsercured WAP I know how much being without the internet sucks (took me 2 mins to find an address on the net, without the net I'd spent 2 days phoning people and getting nowhere). So my idea is to provide free basic wifi to strangers, no P2P, no network access, limited speed etc. Just enough for people to be able to check there email, browse the web or us an IM client. But I also want to have a set of my own wireless computers that have full access to my LAN. So far I've thought of using 2 WAP's, a more expensive system. Or VLANS, but that only seems to seperate out the cabled from wireless. Or a RADIUS/Chillispot style system, which I don't know enough about. Can they provide 2 classes of users on 1 WAP? One which is limited, and one which is full access. My main worry with this is that someone will abuse the free internet, so how would I prevent that, and keep the limited class of wireless users in there own sandbox area?
