Wireless Printer Off of Network
Posted on 2006-11-29
This may be simple, or sound like an odd question, but I can't seem to find a good answer with searches. Here goes...
1. Guests can access the Internet through our wireless access points. They can surf to their hearts content, but they do not have access to anything on our network.
2. If they want to print something, they need to login to our network to get to a network printer. This allows them access to folders and files I'd rather they didn't see.
I'd like to add an option besides step 2 above. I am looking to setup a cheap laser printer connected to a wireless router/access point. (Dell 1710n laser printer & D-Link 4300 gaming router setup as an AP if possible) This printer will only be accessible via this access point. (Ethernet or USB wire to Acess point) Guests can type in the encryption key, surf the Internet, print to this one printer, but not have access to anything on our network. Make sense? Let me know if I need to explain this in a different way.
