    I know that linksys routers with upgraded firmware support a feature
    similar to this that puts the wireless clients each on their own
    separate vlan, so they not only don't see the wired interfaces...they
    don't see each other either...i believe linksys supports a feature that
    bars wireless for wired, but am unsure about others. wrote:
