Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Sitecom wireless router that claims to combine an ADSL 2+ modem, a router, an Ethernet switch and a wireless access point. I want to use this router to connect my computers to broadband and also allow them to share files with each other - this is the easy bit! I also want to connect my 9 year old computer to the network mainly to act as a print server. This may be difficult because my old computer (excellent though it is) can no longer support modern firewall / virus protection software. Can anyone tell me how to configure the Sitecom router so that my old computer can act as a print server and also be isolated from any malicious stuff coming from the internet?
Your pc should still be able to run a anti virus programme, as i assume it's atleast windows 98se, so you can install a free excellent anti virus programme called AVG free, with free updates, see link below:- http://www.download.com/3000-2239_4-10746390.html Your router will have wep WPA-PSK security and a built in firewall also, so it should be safe especially if it is win98se as this version is not a suseptable to viruses and trojans unlike XP. You can assign mac addresses in your router, this will only allow any inputed pc's mac addresses to access the router, you will need to input each individual pc's mac address into the router settings.
