    I am a relative novice in the area of networking and would appreciate some
    help.

    I have a XP Home desktop connected via ethernet to the internet via ADSL2+
    modem/Router (D-link DSL-G606T). I have added my kids PC and a printer to the
    network via the ethernet ports and my Laptop (Vista Home Premium) connects
    wirelessly - all works great. I use WPA for the wireless security as I do use
    file sharing to enable central storage of personal files on the main PC.

    My question: Is it somehow possible to enable guests at our home to connect
    wirelessly to our internet connection without providing them access to my
    shared files, but still retain the file sharing I have?

    Thanks
