I have a small business that I would like to add a wireless network to as well as a guest network.  My budget is less than $1000.  Can someone provide me with a good recommendation for an access point with guest features?  Are there and devices out there that have two different NIC's that I can use for separate subnets?

The Sonicwall TZ series routers are a good choice. Can be had for anywhere from about $300-$1000

They give you wireless with multiple networks (guest and corporate).

Zyxel N4100 is a good box.

Also the TZ205 and TZ215 give multiple network ports at 10/100/1000 speed. TZ205 have 5 and TZ215 has 7
.

Also have VPN (SSL and client) as well as 3G wireless network failover (optional).

I am not sure about the NSA240 but the NSA220 and the NSA250 will support up to 16 Sonicpoints.
I'm guessing that the 240 is some in between model.

I have one of these in my house. It is a great solution for 200 bucks.

I have two bands for use and guest access. I use one band for computers and the other for portable devices or streaming video via Amazon. The guest access is on for anyone who visits. It works perfectly.
