  1. Hi, I wanted to share wireless network (only for INTERNET use) for this one Wireless Individual Group but do not want them to see or share the resource of our Office Network. In which step should I take to set it up...

    We are using WORKGROUP infrastructure and the current setup is show below

    Internet ----> ADSL Modem ---> Wireless Router ------> Office Network
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . -
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . -
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . -
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Wireless Individual Group (WIG)

    As stated above both Office Network and WIG can share Internet connection with no problem, but at the same time WIG can also shared the resource of Office Network (which in this case I do not wanted)

    Please any advice...

    Your wireless router may have some options to limit the access of wireless clients. Take a look in the firewall and/or security settings.

    If you don't have anything like this in your router config, then the best solution would be to put another (wired) router (or any other computer acting as a firewall) between the wireless router and the office network. It would look like this:
    Code:
          Internet
              |
          DSL modem
              |
         Wifi router
           /      \
       router   Wireless clients
         |
      Office network
