I work with a school district using an old NT Server 4.0 box for handing out IP Addresses.  These are 10.1.2.x numbers.

We are going to purchase some laptops shortly and the administration wants to setup a few computer labs with wireless access points.  We planned to use WAP and MAC address filtering for security.  However I was thinking it might be good to setup a network with IP Addresses set to 198.168.1.x so they would be separate from the 10.x network.  This may or may not be possible as they students may need access to servers on the other side.

Should we setup the 192.168. scheme on the wireless and have a gateway to the other 10.1 side of things?

Has anyone done anything similar to this, and what type of implementation did you use?  

I've setup a lot of networks and I've done VPN before, but just trying to think about what the best way to do this might be, being that kids will be kids and we have to take security in the school into consideration.

Thanks for any help...
