I need to provide wireless access in a c-store.

Here is the situation.

1 C-Store with  static IP, DSL connection. There is one store pc on site which connects to my corp office with the help of Check Point Secure Client and is joined to my domain. The router in place  (Provided by SBC or ATT)  is a Netopia Cayman 6624 "I think".  Now, I would like to force the wireless clients onto a different subnet. Is this possible by connecting a Netgear or Linksys wireless router to the Cayman and having it serve DHCP just to the wireless clients??

If it is not a dedicated DSL (point to point) connection, that will work just fine.  Connect the Linksys, or D-Link, or Netgear Wireless Broadband router to the PC by USB, configure the WAN connection to a static address in your local network range, Configure the LAN and DHCP for whatever range you want to serve to clients and then connect it to the Netopia.  Chack access with a wireless laptop or similar.
