I just set up a broadband connection using a wireless router and cable modem. I am using ethernet cable connecting my modem to the wireless router and another ethernet cable from the router to my desktop pc. My laptop connects via the wireless connection. I can access the internet on both computers, without problems.I would like to share my printer (attached to desktop via usb) and files. I have read that in order to do so, I should place my local area connection in the trusted zone. This connection and the loopback adapter are the only connections listed under the zones tab. My issue is this: since my router connects me to the internet and to my laptop (wireless) through the same ethernetplug on my desktop, by placing this connection in the trusted zone, will this also place mydesktop's internet connection into the trusted zone as well? Would this pose a threat to my computer's security?Thanks for any info....
