Hello, I have a Watchguard XTM505 that I use as my firewall and multiwan.

I have a large number of salesmen with cell phones and laptops who "free-roam" around the office. What I want to do, if it is possible to properly secure it, is set up a wireless router in the office that will be isolated from the rest of the network. I don't care if the info going over it is "bulletproof." What I'm trying to protect is my network.

Is there a way to do this with a Firebox and a Linksys WVR200? My network is based on SBS2003 and employs a mix of Windows XP and Windows 7 machines.
