    I have a wireless network setup at work which also gives internet
    access to everybody connected. The OS on these machines ranges from
    win98 to XP. There are some computers that I want to prevent from
    seeing or accessing the other computers but still allow internet
    connectivity. What would be the simplest way of accomplishing this. Is
    there something I can do in the wireless router settings?

  2. What make/model of wireless equipment do you use? This question might
    be better directed to a newsgroup which specializes in the
    administration of your particular wireless equipment.

    However, depending on the vendor, you might be able to enable an access
    control list so clients can only communicate with the gateway. On Cisco
    switches 'switchport protected' could also be useful if you have more
    than one wireless access point.

  3. Hi
    Give all the computers static IP ,and ban the None sharing computers by
    installing Software Firewall on the sharing computers. Most software
    Firewall let use the Trusted Zone to control LAN traffic.
    Or get a second Router, and segregate the public computers from the private
    Wireless Segregation -
