Hello Stephen,


Indeed, there is a legal impact, even if not realized as such.
Depending on the country where you do that, there are different
restrictions.
As general you should take in consideration that:
- your provider may deny such a practice and cancel your contract
- your provider may change your contractual agreements
- by sharing an internet connection you can fall under the deffinition
of "access provider" where
* you have to comply to aditional legal restrictions as other "big"
ISP too
* you may be accountable for illegality commited using your
connection


Best regards,

How sweet of you...

Now matter how kind your intentions are, you may want to check the terms
and conditions of the agreement of the contract you hold with your
service provider.

You legally may not be allowed to do such a thing you are proposing.

You may be aware of this already, just wanted to put it out there for
others who may have the same mind set as you.

Subject: Home wireless free hotspot

Hello,

I have a home wireless network that I’d like to make available to
neighbors
who need to borrow a connection from time to time.  Consider it karmic
repayment for the times I’ve had to borrow someone else’s open
connection.
Of course, I’d like to do it securely, so I’m looking for some advice.

My main network has a wireless router connected to the Internet, with a
few
wired connections to my home computers.  The main router’s wireless
network
is protected by WPA, access control via MAC address, etc.  My thought is
I
would attach a second wireless router (Netgear) to a port off the main
router and leave it unsecured, using a second subnet, and block any
routing
between the two subnets, other than straight out to the Internet, but I’m
not sure the best way to do that.

So, a few questions:

If I set up a second router with a subnet “subservient” to my main
router,
presumably it has to get an IP address within the address space of the
main
network, but how can I limit access to that network to only my Internet
interface?

Would it make more sense for my secure network to be subservient to the
main
network, i.e. open up the main network and secure a secondary subnet off
it?

I also have a Secure Computing SG 300 Firewall/VPN appliance, could I
configure that help keep the networks separate and my home network
secure?
It’s got a lot of nice features, but I’m not sure it would help make my
configuration more secure.

This may be a very bad idea, so I’d also be happy to hear why that’s so
if
it’s true.

Thanks for any advice.


John Lightfoot
