I want to segregate my conference center from the rest of my network. I just want the users to have internet access only. Right now if someone plug into the conference center they can't access our network. we have only 1 t-1 line. How can this be done.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If someone plugs into the network at the conference centre, do they have access to the network. ie can they ping all devices on your network ?

If they can, and you only want to allow them access to your internet gateway, you could setup an Access Control list, if your switch allows it.

If they can’t ping any devices on your network, then what ip address scheme are you/conference user using?
(They’ll either need a static address on the same network as the rest, or an DHCP assigned address.)

Hope This Helps.
Derek.

    Where do they get their IP address. If it is DHCP then be sure they get the right gateway address. As long as they are NOT members of the domain and the members of the domain do NOT have file sharing turned on, you are good to go. They login to their local machine, it has an address that is routable and they can use the internet. The other systems behind the gateway may share the same address space, but unless running a service that shares resources they are shadows. An ill mannered visitor might try pinging the other addresses behind the gateway or running a port scanner for the range of addresses (even less polite), BUT without logging into the domain - NO Access. You do have your domain to require computer accounts as well as user accounts?

    have you tried subnetting you network that way your main network is segment from your other network then you set up your router for the networks and point them to the gateway, if run dhcp you can scope the ip address have a look at www.learningtosubnet.com
