Depending on how many your business allows to access the internet, one method is to limit the MAC addresses. If you want to prevent others from using the security key that was issued to one resident and not others. You could do a MAC addres reservation depending on what router you have.
You could also do DHCP reservations as well (depending on the model) and then limit the number of DHCP client to those that have paid or whatever service you are offering.
Either way they both will require an initial administrative setup.
Personally, I believe in the DHCP reservations on an E3000 because it also uses MAC address's instead of PC/Server names.

I am hardwired to a wireless router and the other people in the building use the wireless. How can I prevent them from accessing my computer, as (I think) we are on the same LAN? Does enabling NAT redirection accomplish this, or does that only prevent intrusion from the Internet?

Theoretically, any devices connected to the same network should be able to ping, share files/printers and map one another. What you can do though is to make sure that your computer has an administrative password and you could also change the workgroup name set on your computer.

I realize that this is an old thread, but I came upon it by searching. AP isolation will not allow your wireless clients to view ANY other computer, let alone your hardwire PC.

Was what I meant by making a "guest-network" (on the router). Most routers have this setting and it is exactly for these kinds of "situations". E.g. a shop giving WiFi access to it's customers without letting them enter their LAN (a separate SSID). It will work as a internet gateway and not allowing access to LAN. Maybe I was unclear
EDIT: I am sorry I did not see this was for WIRED routers. My suggestion is for wifi routers.
