    Wireless Network Security Question


    Hi, I'm wondering about how can I keep my individual laptop safe from other computers on the same wireless network, because I got a younger brother who goes on very unsafe sites and downloads so much stuff, Is windows firewall keeping me secure?

    If he is working from his own computer and you are not networked with him, that should not affect safety of yours even if connected to same network.
