We have a small network at home with 1 router (Linksys) for Internet access and various Windows 2000/XP machines. I would like to "isolate" my kid's computer from all other pc's so that any virus/spyware/netbios access, etc on his computer could not reach our pc's. But I need to let him access the router for Internet access.
What do you suggest ?
We have antivirus and firewalls (Symanec) running on all machines. I'd still like an additionnal level of isolation just in case...
I was thinking about assigning his PC an IP address on a different network address than our PC's. (ex: him: 192.168.2.10 / all others: 192.168.1.* - the router is on 192.168.1.1). Would that help isolate him or not really. If it would, how do you set this up so that he can still use the router to access Internet.
