    Restricting access to internal hosts

    hi all!

    i have a problem which i hope you can help me with. please see image located
    here:

    as you can see i connected a router with the company network and which
    routes to a gateway connected to the internet. everything is working ok and
    there is full connectivity throughout. my problem is that users which are
    connecting to the internet via the router are able to access the internal
    workstations. is there a way how i could still allow internet access to the
    machines connected to the router but disallow them access to the internal
    workstations?

    thanks!

  2. You may have many options. 1. Put the wireless router before the gateway. 2.
    If the gateway has another port, connect the wireless router using different
    subnet.
