Secure guest unsecured wireless access to company network - DMZ?

I have a customer that is requesting a "secure" guest Doctor unsecured wireless access point. We have a SBS 2003 lan with a Linksys RV042 firewall router. DSL in and 192.168.1.x inside IP. We need to place an unsecured access point for guest doctor access - this need not have any access to the internal sbs 2003 LAN - internet only access. Would placing a lower-end Linksys or other on the RV042 DMZ work for this? My understanding of the uses and the strengths of a DMZ is limited.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

yes, you could create a DMZ add wireless access point to that network and you clients could have access out to the net only, as long as you do not allow that DMZ network access to the inside.

Agree with the DMZ. The RV042 should allow you to designate a DMZ interface and a separate IP address/subnet for that network. Attach an access point to the designated DMZ interface of the RV042 and away you go.
