I have a basement sutie in my new house, and am offering internet as an included utility.
I am a software developer so literate to some extent with networking, but I just want to know the best way I can secure this. If I change my workgroup to some cryptic password - could that secure it enough?
I have the following setup: I have a tower PC that I am using as basically a file storage box. 3 mapped drives that I connect to wirelessly via my laptop. These can NOT be accessible to my tenant.
Currently I have a D-Link Wireless N router (the white one - model escapes me at the moment).
Can I do this just with the workgroup change? Do I need hardware?
I'm also thinking of limiting bandwidth which I think I'd need a pretty expensive switch. If there is a way to determine bandwidth on a specific port, that would be great! This is the secondary question, the first one is the one i really want the answer to.
Thank you !
