Split the signal coming from the modem to go to each router.
How exactly would i do this? You mean physically, with a switch perhaps?
Change the password to the router.
Done! He does not have accesss to my linksys router.
Block access by NOT allowing file sharing over a network connection on YOUR computer.
Well I have 2 computers connectedto my linksys and would like to be able to share files between them.
Do not share printers.
Done! My printer connected to one of my computers is not shared.
Do not have remote assistance enabled.
Done! remote assistance is disabled under "services."
Use a firewall to block intrusions from your friends computer.
I am using zone alarm. I dont know if it is configured correct though.
As for slow or crawling web activity, if your friend is streaming videos off of YouTube or something similar, this is going to slow the whole network down regardless of what you do, because you are both sharing the same allocated band-width from the cable provider.
I suspect he is running some kind of server to sniff packets and monitor my web activity and who knows what else. This intrusion of privacy of various types, is what i'm trying to prevent. I don't suspect, YET at least, that he is browsing through my personal folders and files.
