Or rather the isolation you feel when you start learning about networking is something I'll apologize in advance about. Let's get down to it.
Today, without any changes to the network you could make all the file and printer shares require an account. This is natively supported so while they may SEE a network share since they don't have an account they can't get in.
I'd do that first.
The downside is that many don't want to learn about network share permissions and accounts. And if I wrote about it here I would be duplicating many web sites and may make another error but this is all documented but what I often read is that it should be easier.
Dear home network savvy:
I have the current situation:
I have broadband internet connection from my ISP, I have one D-Link Router connected to the WAN of the broadband modem, the LAN ports on the router are used for my PC, iMac, Laptop to access the internet and I have a LinkSys Media Server connected to the Router for file sharing / storage on my home network
My cousin just moved to my house and share the internet connection from the same router, but as a result, she also has access to my other computers, including the LinkSys media server.
I still want to give my cousin the internet connection, but don't want her have access to my computers and the LinkSys media server.
Would two routers be a feasible solution? If so, how should I configure the routers?
Thanks every one, your support would be very much appreciated.
