Can I require two passwords to access a wireless network?

Specs: Windows 7 Starter, AMD/2GB
I've got a guy who wants to double password protect his wifi. I know that having strong encryption, and a long password with alpha-numeric and non-alpha-numeric characters would work better for him, but I'm not sure I can convince him of that. Is there a way that I can require two passwords to get into a wireless network?

Not that I know of. All the SOHO equipment I've worked with only has provision for a single encryption key.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Why would two passwords make something more secure?

Security doesn't work like that.

Or perhaps this person is really talking about a wifi captive portal where you have to authenicate before you get internet. Like you have to do at a hotel.

Why doesn't he just add MAC filtering?

Situation is unknown. Could be at a hotel or other type AP where mac filtering would be of no use.
