I just use the WEP feature of the wireless network for security and setting up a workgroup for sharing among all the stations (PC, laptops) in my home.
So, i think in order to share the network stations you have to have a network workgroup so I don't think your customer will have access unless you setup the workgroup for him?
Sorry i m a newbie to network too..

Note: this will only work if: a)Your modem also acts as a small router and hands out more than one IP address to the internal network b) if you have two IP addresses at that location and can assign one to each router, c) if a or b doesn't work, you will need to purchase a second IP address from your ISP and assign one to each router.

Is there an easy way to find out if the modem hands out more than one IP address? I wasn't involved in setting up our network. Thanks

You will be better off assigning different internal IP addresses on each router before you connect everything. Also, until the setup is complete, I would recommend leaving laptop/PC nearby to connect directly to the routers via Cat5 so we always have access.
Now, in the configuration interface of each router, visit the "Status" page. There you should find all the information on each interface, at this moment, we are concerned with the WAN (internet) interface, if you compare each routers WAN (internet) interfaces, and they both have an address, each address is different, and neither of them are 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.?.?, then you will probably be ok without having to purchase another IP address.
I also thought of another idea that should work if you would rather not purchase another IP address, but you would need a total of 3 routers, one could be a simple wired one, the other two could be the wireless connections. You would no longer need a hub, nor need to worry about what your modem is handing out.
