Guest Network and Proxy Settings and Network isolation

Hello guys,

I use a netgear WNR612 router. I basically want to setup two networks which are isolated on my router. I have to use proxy settings in my college to access internet.So, I have unique username and passkey as does each student.
Each person is given a lanport and if one has to access internet or institute's e-mail, he can insert an ethernet cable in the lanport and connect to laptop.Once a connection is made, he can access intranet or internet by logging in the servers.I have connected a router instead of an ethernet cable in the lan port.

How to get two AP's from my router i.e. can my router create two networks which can act as two different ethernet ports?

The problem with router is that at any point of time, only a single person can logon to proxy servers through the same network.Assume that I am logged into proxy servers through my account(I am connected to network with SSID network1), a new person connected to network1(same network) cannot logon to proxy servers because I am already logged in. Though, the new person can still access the internet because I am already logged on to the servers.

So,I created a guest network(let it's SSID be network2) and I am logged into proxy servers through my account(I am connected to network with SSID network1), a new person connected to network2 cannot logon to proxy servers because I am already logged in. But, the new person can still access the internet because I am already logged on to the servers.

My plan is to separate the network into two networks network1 and network2 so that -
Any one else who wants to use my wifi can log on to network2 and access the internet using their proxy username and password and not through my account if Iam logged into the servers through network1.

I want to do this because each student in our campus has fixed internet quota for a particular week. So, I don't want my friends to use up my quota when they are connected to my wifi.
Thanks.

It may or may not be possible it depends on what restrictions if any they put on the lan jack.

First thing to try is to turn off the DHCP on your router and plug the lan port into the wall jack. Your router is now a AP or switch. This should allow each device you plug into the "router" to get its own IP address from the network and therefore be prompted for its own password.

If this does not work then I suspect you are out of luck. If they have found a way to limit the lan jack to one IP and they tie the IP address to your account when you log in then you cannot share it.

To do it the way you propose you would need a actual router and not a gateway that only has a single IP on the wan. You might be able to use dd-wrt if your router supports it. Still you MUST be able to have 2 or more IP addresses to make it work since their security is based on IP address.
