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.
