Cisco AP's support the same v-lan concept as the Cisco switches.  With a 
full Cisco environment, every connected MAC is in it's own vlan.  With 
the nexgate appliance doing the "we work with any IP" concept, people 
with static IPs can connect as well.  This is part of the Hilton hotel 
High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) requirements.

Other APs have user mode isolation.  They simply will not bridge 
wireless clients to other wireless clients.  Still works quite well, at 
a much better price.
