    I have a wrt54g version 3 with 4.30.5 firmware. 2 pcs connect through ethernet and 1 laptop wireless. I want to enable wpa2 but because I am a bed and breakfast, I want to have wi-fi internet access for my guests (and printer sharing if possible too). I don't want them or anyone else able to access my network. Is this possible? I heard somewhere that there may be a way to create a guest log-on with internet restrictions (this log-on would have to allow multiple guests). Can anyone help me with this?

    Easiest way would be turn on wpa or wpa2 with a passkey. If you change the key daily and just have any guest you have that wants internet access get ahold of you, you can give them the key of the day and all should be well. I would be carefull with having just wpa2 as there are still alot of adapters that will not connect to wpa2 networks.

    The things that come to mind would be to write some serious iptables rules, or to set up a hot spot router like "chilispot"
