Use two routers.

The first one "Router A" (connected to the cable/DSL modem) provides the "Public" wifi. The second one "Router B" is connected to LAN port of the first router and provides the LAN. The firewall in Router A protects both sub-networks from attacks from outside the house. The firewall in Router B protects the LAN from anything connected to Router A's sub-network.

As has been mentioned, some routers have this functionality (for a separate public sub-network) built in.
