In terms of absolute minimum hassle - I'd buy a WRT54G or equiv. Even the
standard firmware can shape each ethernet port individually (from memory)
and if it can't, one of the 3rd party ones definitely will be able to -
Someone on the list should be able to confirm this.

Just chuck your 900AP+ on one ethernet port and shape it for public, then
setup the local interface as unshaped (but secured).

That should require 0 mucking around with linux traffic shaping rules/etc
and hacking round with OS's .
