How can I change the settings of the WAP4400N to prevent users from browsing to each others PC's once they connect to the WIF network? Also, how do I prevent browsing of the wired LAN that the unit is attached to?

In the AP's web-based setup menus, look in Wireless->Wireless Security for a Wireless Isolation (within SSID) option. If you set that to Enabled, it should prevent clients from browsing other wireless devices while connected.

The WAP4400N does not have a firewall nor any type of routing capabilities. It acts much like a hub except it's full duplex instead of simplex like hubs were, and you can make it act like a wireless switch instead by enabling the Wireless Isolation option in Wireless->Wireless Security.

You'll need to put another appliance between your LAN and the AP if you want to keep its wireless clients from talking to the rest of your LAN, too.
