Need me some WiFi in the workplace

Hey everyone,

Just have some Q's for secure wifi options for work. I'll lay out the environment, then ask what options we might have. Would love input.

I work for a non-profit organization. We would like to have wifi in the office, but have some needs and concerns.

1) We have 10 employees who need WiFi (iPads mostly, but some laptops)
2) We have hundreds of volunteers that are in the office on any given week, and we would like them to be able to utilize the wifi

1) There are secure files on a server in the office. Currently only those logged into the internal network can access these files. It's important that only the employees can have access to these files.

So I ask, is there a way to have wifi with double layer security. In other words one password for employees that allow access to the server and files, and one password for volunteers that just allow access to data for internet use?

Thanks for all your insight and thoughts. Very much appreciated.

Happy to answer any other questions that might help give solutions.

So, essentially you want to separate LAN from Wireless LAN but want to allow both to connect to the internet?

If that's correct, you could in theory implement it by altering a Linksys Router. It is a lengthy process, but this guidewill walk you through it.

If you get stuck let me know.
