Windows 7: Wifi Sharing question

Wifi Sharing question

I live in a senior mobile home park and the management has given me permission to setup a wifi hotspot in the community clubhouse. I added a wireless access point, an Edimax EW-7228APn, to their non-wifi router located in their park office. They want me to make sure that anyone using the new hotspot cannot look at their files on the office computer. How do I configure the access point to make sure that no one can intrude on managements files?

Thank you
Len

You can try setting up the guest account on the A/P, this usually requires that you set up a separate SSID, password etc. then make all connection through the guest account which should place you outside the subnet that the office's router is using. This should prevent anyone using your A/P from having access to the files on the office's network.

The office computer should have a password set on it, on the user account that is used and if they have more then one a password on all of them. For anyone to get to that computer they would need to know the username and the password for it.

And they, the office, would need to share the drive or folders. If they don't share something and turn off File Sharing no one can get to it.
