Solved Increasing connections and security

Specs: Lin/Win/Mac, n/a
I'm not sure about my title, it;'s the best I could come up with. I have approximately 7 computers, two iPhone, and iPad, wireless printers and a network attached storage. Most are connected over via wifi, the exceptions being one pc, the nas and a printer. I plan to add six more devices plus some ip cams. The way the router or network is configured whenever a guest connects to our wifi they can "see" our computers. I haven't been able to tell if they can see the files or just the name of the computer.

Question 1: How can I tell if the guests are able to access the data on our computers or networked drive?

Question 2: If I add a switch will I need to do anything special with regard to security?

Thank you for any advice.

✔ Best Answer
If you haven't enabled "File and printer sharing" on a particular computer, nothing can be accessed on it remotely through the network. Only it's IP address and computer name is visible, nothing else.
