    Is it possible to set one port on the router to only have internet access (normal http) and not to e.g. see my shares and so on?
    If have to make it to a fixed port because it´s possible that there are sometimes different PCs attached.

    It should be a kind of "Guest" connection.

    You don't say what router but with a Linksys WRT54GS v1.1 at least you can split off a LAN port into its own vlan, give it a different IP address (in different range), then setup specific forwarding firewall commands. Probably could get dnsmasq to give out auto Ip addresses via this new interface. But it a fair amount of work and only secure if you really know what you are doing.

    An alternative is to get a second router maybe a new little fonera and only allow guest access through than?

    If you're not afraid to try it, this thread should help you get there. You can also spare yourself the trouble of taking the interfaces down and up again via scripts by following the trick listed at the end of this thread
