    I am trying to put together a package for a small hotel that
    wants to offer free internet access to their guests.

    Someone mentioned how I would handle Network Neighborhood. Being a Linux
    guy I wasn't really sure : ). Network Neighborhood will expose machines
    like Win95/98 to other machines on the network. At least so I have been
    told.

    Off the top of my head I was thinking VLAN for each port but perhaps there
    is a better way?

    John,

    Use a switch that supports private VLANs. Each of the hotel rooms should be
    connected to an isolated port. on the switch. Any services, like a file
    server or router, should be connected to a promiscuous port. Promiscous
    ports can talk to any port. An isolate port, though, can only talk to a
    promiscous port. This neatly solves your problem with Microsoft browsing.

    Cheers!
