Re: Sharing a DSL line

Yes, you should avoid this setup at all costs. If there aren't any resources on 
your staff network that the public would need to access then you can treat the 
wireless network as a DMZ. This might require that you treat both networks 
separately as much as you can.

Quoting Andrew <andrew () auliya org>:

Hello,

I am considering sharing a DSL line for both a staff and a public network,
the public one wireless, the staff one hard-wired. Both will lie behind
firewall routers, so theoretically any potential attacker from the inside
would be in the same position as an intruder from the internet. Is this
correct?

Thanks,

Andrew
