We have a Cisco 2821 router routing all our traffic. We want to add a Wireless Linksys wrt54g2 router for guest to gain internet access. How can this be setup from inside the firewall to give wireless access to the internet but no access to our network?

It's not clear what your topology is in terms of where the firewall is. Ideally you would want the wireless router on it's own DMZ so if anyone can connect to the wireless network they are only allowed access to the Internet.

By the way even this is often not enough. If someone uses your wireless router to gain access to the Internet and then hacks some third party you are responsible because you are in control of the wireless router.
