Hi all - any ideas on the simplest method / model to only allow ports 80 and 443? We have a wired LAN but want to provide internet access (only) to the students and staff. Ideally this would be done by only allowing those ports through instead of VLANs etc.

Currently using Linksys WRTG543G's which do not allow multiple SSIDs or port filtering.

cheapest option is probably a wifi router that can just give me port filtering / restrict access based on selected ports / protocols...

If you have any linux knowledge the easiest thing as stated would be to install squid as a proxy on an old box and setup access rules

I think you can do this on windows too but i prefer linux Cool

I agree with this idea... Or restricting ports to certain IP/MAC addresses
