Default Open wireless access but protect wired server and client?

Wireless router and wired XP server and client. Want to enable my
customers access to internet with THEIR laptops but keep them out of
the wired computers.
How to do this?

You need wireless-to-wired isolation, ideally by getting a wireless
router with that feature. (See hotspot routers in the wikis below.)

An alternative is to setup VLAN separation in DD-WRT firmware running on
a suitable wireless router platform.

Yet another alternative is to use three low-end (cheap) routers:

+----------+
| Wired |
| Router |
+--+----+--+
| |
+-----+ +------+
| |
+-----+----+ +-----+----+
| Wired | | Wireless |
| Router | | Router |
+----------+ +----------+

That puts everyone on "double NAT" which generally works well, although
it can break some (older) network apps.

Hi,

As John said, maybe wireless routers/AP already have a feature that allows
segregation between wired and wireless networks.

....but, since you are asking, I guess yours doesn't.

If you have a relatively old computer sitting around that isn't doing
anything useful, you can do exactly what you want by turning it into a
captive portal.

Google "captive portal".

One is CP is ZoneCD, which I've used with great success:
