I have searched Hi an Low for an layman's description of how to setup up a safe, secure wireless home network.
Without getting into geek language can anyone help me?
This what I have now:
Cable modem (Time-Warner)
Wireless router ( Netgear WGT624 v3)
First desktop: custom built, now running XP Home, soon to be dual boot with Vista Home Premium, hardwired to the router, HP series 5600 printer interfaced via USB
Second desktop: Dell Dimension C521, with XP Home only, communicating to the router via a Linksys 2.4 GHz Wireless G PCI adapter, HP series 1600 printer interfaced via USB aso.
Notebook: Sony Vaio VGN-FE-890 with Vista Business
How do I
1) setup the router so that each system connecting to it is secure, I sometimes shop online, security is a must
2) setup the notebook to print from one, if not both printers?
I would prefer to use the HP 5600 as the primary printer for the notebook
Once again, since this is a wireless setup, eavesdropping is a major concern for me, I do realize I have to set a password, however the jargon I have dealt with so far has me totally lost............hence the name newbie.........
Thanks in advance!
