My neighbour would like to hook up to my internet connection on a fairly infrequent basis. He only live here in the summer months. His computer is full of pop-ups, toolbars etc etc where he does not really know what he is doing or downloading. Last year I ran an ethernet cable into his place and hooked him up with a wired connection to my previous adsl modem/wireless router. I am also connected via an ethernet connection.
It may have been coincidental, but for the first time in a very long while, my PC got infected (I am running Norton Internet Security 2010) soon after hooking him up, and I lost more stuff than I want to remember.
At the moment I disconnect my ethernet connection when I go out to work, and hook his one up.
Although this works, I would prefer to put some sort of Isolating hardware between him and me, so we can both be connected at the same time.
I have since replaced the adsl modem/wireless router for a Belkin F5D7634-4 V2, but as far as I can tell, this router, does not support VLAN.
Can anybody please offer a solution to this problem, thanks.
