Just a little question about workgroups. If I set two computer on one workgroup and put two computers in another workgroup does that mean that they will have no chance to communicate with each other...

Example I could have a workgroup called Home and another one called LAB so that the house computers can only acess other house computers and the servers in the LAB can only see each other..?

no, if that is the only difference, then you would be able to access the other computers using command line style instead of a convienient GUI. ex 2 different workgroups , to access the other nodes shared file i would go to windows explorer, and type something like this \\laptop\shared and hit enter, the "\\" denotes network computer, the "laptop" is the name of the computer, and the "shared" is the folder on the network computer that i want to access.

Ok Thanks just wanted to clarify that in my head. So if I want to seperate two things the best way would probably go and get two routers... or something like that.

subnet, firewall and permissions change the settings here to save you the cash. but yup, another router would certainly do it too!!

Yeah but it's like sex you can have all the protection but not having any is the safest way :thumbsup: like you can have all the firewalls and stuff in the world but nothing beats unplugging the cable.
