  1. Hi any suggestion on setting up a sercure 2 differents workgroup which sharing the same ISP through 1 router?

    My current Workgroup is for Office used that connected through HUB1 ---> Router 1 ----> Internet
    I am planning on setting up another Workgroup for Recreation through HUB2 ---> Router 1 -----> Internet

    The problem is how can I prevent Recreation Workgroup Computers from accesses Office Workgroup and vice versa?

    *All PC are using Windows XP*

    Thank in advance

    I'm sure 2 different workgroups doesn't prevent other from seeing each other or accessing sharing files...

    I stand corrected:hotouch:
    can be done across different Workgroups by directly naming the files and group and having appropriate rights.

    so limit permissions should stop access
