How to isolate wired and wireless computers on a wireless router?

    I am setting up a wireless hotspot for a friend who owns a small
    company. She wants her customers to have access to the internet but
    not her internal office LAN. Simply explained:

    A -----> C
    B -----> C

    If A is a computer on the LAN, B is a computer wirelessly connected to
    the router and C is the internet access point, then A can talk to C, B
    can talk to C, but A cannot talk to B and B cannot talk to A. This
    will prevent wireless users gaining access to her LAN.

    This is a very small company and they want to implement this cheaply.
    Anybody know how to do this?

    One way to do it is:

    1. Have the "A" PCs use static IPs in the range -
    2. "B" PCs use dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled on the router) in the range -
    3. On the "A" PCs, set firewalls to exclude -
