I've been asked by my friend who runs a B&B to put in a wireless access point for his guests to use. He and his family stay on the top floor with NAS, tablets, mobiles, TV, etc. He wants me to put in an access point for his guests to use. It needs to be such that whilst they get access to the 'net, they won't get access to his NAS or any of his home network. This is where I come unstuck and need some help I'm afraid.
I can get a CAT 6 cable run from the router to a point downstairs for the access point no problem. I've a couple of questions though and this is where I could do with help.
Is there such a thing as an access point that will automatically change IP addresses for guest users (who will still get an SSID and password to log on) away from the IP range of the home network and that it will only allow net access, no network access at all.
Also, the current router has gigabit networking ports. If I used POE for powering an access point, am I right that it would only offer 100Mbps network speed for users?
The broadband coming into the property is fibre and 78Mbps.
I do hope for some advice and keep my fingers crossed. This will actually be useful for me too as I'd like something like this to split children net access and home network, etc
Thank you for any and all help
