Restricting WiFi

Hello,
I don't know if these kinds of questions qualify for this service.  I hope.  Here we go:
I would like to set up a wireless home network (LAN I supposed it is called)  with a main server and printers.  (with the ability to use the AirPrint also with iPhone or tablet.)   I would like however to be selective with the Internet Access to the peripheral devices.  I suppose that this is possible.  Can anyone give me a lead.
Thank you.

Your router does support restrictions, below is the link to your user guide' check page 60,

https://www.cisco.com/web/consumer/support/userguides2/4021196_B.pdf

It supports both mac and IP address filtering as well as time of day.

Set up a shared secret via WPA2 Enterprise, the wireless router should also have the ability to block internet access based on mac address or IP address. I use this on my kids where my wireless router stops them from accessing the internet after 9:00PM Sunday through Thursday. Capabilities vary based on the wireless router and could probably give better details if I knew what model router and firmware you had. I have a Linksys Wireless N router.

Most wifi routers have the capability to restricted devices by Ip or MAC address.

What model wifi router do you have.

Just not setting up any Port Forwarding should limit access to the peripherals from the Internet.
