Here's the setup: in a small office, I have a Netgear DG834 router, with one port hooked up to a GS105e switch, which has 2 PCs and a printer connected to it. A second router port is connected to a GS724P switch in a separate location; cabling from this point feeds 10 access points throughout the building (2 wired, 8 wireless using PoE).

Currently, any device connected to either switch can access the Internet; however, any device can also access the office computers. I need to create 4 separate user groups: 3 on the GS724TP, and 1 in the office. Each member of each group must have internet access, but none may have access to any other group on either of the two switches.

I am comfortable with simple networking concepts, and believe the hardware is capable of the task; I believe I understand the basics of the VLAN concept. However, I lack the experience that the documentation assumes, and would therefore welcome assistance and advice on the specific settings required on each of the 3 devices to achieve my goal.
