    I have a WRT54GS w/sveasoft firmware connected to the internet via a good ADSL connection. LAN side of it I have a wired ethernet with a few computers and a couple of printers.

    From my own notebooks I would like to have wireless access to the internet and also to my printers.

    I would like to share my internet connection with a couple of my nearest neighbours, but they should of course *NOT* have access to my LAN side devices and services.

    Which hardware would be the best and most cost-effective choice for this scenario? WRT54GS boxes for each of my neighbours too? Other cheaper solutions?

    Is it possible with the stock linksys firmware (or sveasoft's) to separate my WRT54GS' LAN devices / activity from its WL radio (where my neighbours are connected)?

    How do I make this as bulletpropof as possible? Access by MAC address in addition to encryption?

    Thanks for hints, and comments on how to solve this scenario
