generally the preferred method is to require a VPN to connect the LAN
through a wireless system given the security implications of wireless.
that notwithstanding though, if you use a dhcp server OTHER than the
Linksys device, you can assign a useless gateway address to specific
clients which in effect would not allow them to get to any network other
than the network which they can directly access.
