Here is the issue I am having. Im having a very tough time explaining what I would like to do, but I will do my best. I have a Belkin N600 DB wireless router, which serves my small business. I would like to setup guest access for a wired connection to my router so a guest could access ONLY the internet and not my LAN. I would like to give someone a wired access to my internet connection.

Does anyone know how this could be possible? Thanks!!!!!!!

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

The simplest way is to give your Workgroup a really odd name - hard to guess at, with a mixture of alpha-numeric characters. Most people will use WORKGROUP or MSHOME and if they can't access your Workgroup because theirs is named differently, they can't get in. Their computer can't see the name of your Workgroup so it's quite safe.
