If you have an AirPort Extreme or the latest AirPort Express, you can enable a guest network with a seperate SSID (network name) and its users cannot see anything on your 'native' network.Select your AirPort device, click EDIT, select Wireless, and check the box labled "Enable Guest Network" assign a unique network name and password. click update and you're all set.
