Hi everybody. I have an interesting question for you. I have a small business with 6 computers. Two of the computers are for my POS system and the rest are for general use by my staff. I would like to get a new router that I can use to block access to the internet by the POS computers but still allow access to the internet by the other systems. Is there such a router that exist?

If the POS systems run standalone accounting software such as Quickbooks or Sage or similiar, just don't connect them to the router in the first place.
Or have I misunderstood?

Ya i guess I forgot to mention that the POS computers are using a shared Quickbooks data file located on our server. The two POS computers share the data file with the accounting computer and my computer. They also help keep track of inventory with sales. So they have to have local network access.

i figured out how to do it by the way. I just manually assign ip address's on the individual systems but do not assign a default gateway. That gives them local access to the network but not the internet.
