[windows2000] Keeping two wireless networks separate

Apologies if this is slightly OT.


At one site, we have a wireless (802.11b) bridge connecting two buildings,
sharing an internet connection.  We have been asked to also provide wireless
internet access to delegates who attend conferences.  Obviously we can do
this fairly easily (and cheaply) with something like the Network ME102 Access
Point and MA111 USB adaptors.


The problem is this - how do we ensure that delegates cannot browse to any of
the computers on the network?  There is no Win2k server at this location,
just 10 Win2k & XP PCs connected to a Workgroup.  Workgroup security is bad,
so I really want to find a path to the broadband connection that blocks the
office PCs.


The only idea I have at the moment is to split the RJ45 that goes into the
broadband connection into two - one for the office and one for the delegates.
Would this stop each segment seeing each other?


Thanks in advance
