secure wireless on existing network

Unanswered Question
Feb 16th, 2007

My boss wants to provide internet wireless capability to service customers while they are waiting. We have a small LAN with forty workstations and only one port on our router to the outside. I am worried about security. I was thinking of putting a wireless router on our network. Will this secure my network from the wireless users and still get them access to the internet?

I have this problem too.

I think to secure internet access, you can do something called web authentication. with web authentication, a user will first go thorugh the process of authentication before accessing the internet. The following documents explain how to configure web authentication.
