I am quite new to networking and have this problem at work. We will shortly be connecting one of our networks through to another network outside to one of our other branches. This will be done through a VPN but would need to be a two way VPN if you know what I mean? Both branches are going through an IPCop prxy server also.

The other thing is that there is going to be a FREE WIFI router connected to our switch in this network and would need to find a way of completely separating the traffic. So that there is no that free wifi users can get onto our network and vice versa.

Any help appreciated

I agree that a VLAN would serve your purpose best here. Most of the small business or better routers and many of the managed switches have the capabilty to establish a VLAN. All a VLAN does is essentially create a "Virtual network" within but seperate from the main network. It can be routed and controlled like any other network but runns across the same equipment as your main network.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
