Hello Lloyd T,
If you are using a router with a WPA enabled key, it should be fairly secure. The thing to remember about shields up is that if you are behind a router it won't be able to pick up your system unless you have port forwarding enabled; This distorts the results slightly.
Am I correct in saying you have 2 systems with firewalls enabled that both connect to the same router in order to get on to the internet?
If this is the case, you will have some added protection. As an attack would have to get passed the router and then the computers firewall to get into the system.
