How safe is a home network if one computer gets compromised? I have 2 computers and a networked enabled printer hooked up to the internet thru a Linksys firewall router. I m pretty safe in using my computer on the internet but my kids roam far and wide on there s. Because of this I have been reluctant to add the home network to the trusted site. If they get a virus will it not have access to my computer in a trusted zone. I ve also heard that I should turn of NetBios?
This becomes a problem because of the networked printer. I could put the printer into a trusted zone but I believe it s IP is selected by the router and may change.
