Prevent guests on WiFi from printing to office printer

Last Modified: 2015-07-03
Hi - I have a customer who owns rental cottages which are attached to his farmhouse. He has a wireless network within the vicinity which he uses as well as the guests. His office printer is connected to the same wireless network.  A guest sent a print job to it the other day by mistake. Obviously this can't be allowed. How can I configure it so that the guests can't access the printer?
The wireless radios are EnGenius ENS202EXT units. They have multiple SSID and station separation capability but I'm not sure that would allow me to block access to the printer.
