I work at a small business with about 40 users. I have a secured wireless network with additional waps to extend the signal. I am looking to create a Guest Wireless account for users that come in for meetings. Currently I have to enter our password for users and sometimes configure the wireless adapter so it connects to our wireless network.

What is the best way to accomplish this. I have a PIX firewall and netgear wireless access points. I would like the users to connect to the internet only not my network.

So you have a vlan for the outside and inside already setup and most of the ports on the ASA are on the inside vlan.  What you need to do is set up a 3rd vlan and assign that a security level of 50.  Then set up a port to be on that vlan.  Plug your AP into that port.  Configure your AP as just an access point - not a router/AP.  Configure a dhcp pool on the ASA fro this new interface.  Configure the nat statement for that interface.  You should be good to go.
