    I am setting up a wireless LAN for the house so I can share the cable connection with our other computer and so I can stop burning CDs to move a file from one computer to another.
    I already have a wireless 802.11b router/hub up and running. NExt week, I should have the PCI wireless adaptor card in and I'll install it in the other computer.

    I have the router logging all activity (make sure kids keep it G rated.)
    How do I restrict file transfer between the computers? I don't want want the kids to be able to browse my computer but I still want to be able to transfer files between the two. Is there a password system or do I have to manually share each file I want to be able to transfer....or do I make a "share' folder or what do I do?
    I'm trying to figure out the basics of home networking but it's hard since I'm still waiting on the wireless adaptor.

    dont share any folders on your PC... otherwise as long as your not using win98 (i.e. NT or XP you can password folders
