|thanks guapo, I have very little network / router nowledge. I have taken your advice and turned off file sharing and creating a windows startup password under the administrator. |
I do not know passwords for the router as work set it up so cannot change these or tell whether mac filtering is on.
Does this mean that when I surf the internet this doesn't go via the work server on my private computer? It would go via my normal ISP? My company monitor internet usage times; I work from home so in the past if during the day I have need private internet access I have used private computer thinking that work couldn't tell. Could they have?!
By implementing part of your changes (router excepted) am I now reasonably well protected? Thank in advance.
