Hey guys I am moving up to college tomorrow and I have bought a Linksys WRT54GL router for my desktop and laptop. It is going to be hooked up on the schools network so I am going to be using it as a switch basically. What I want to do is be able to share my files on my network, but only have certain MAC address (mine) be able to view anything on plugged into the router. Is there a way I can set up this kind of security so only my computers can access anything connected to my router (so that when I am wirelessly connected to the schools WAP's for example I can still access stuff on my desktop but nobody else connected to the schools network can)?
Thanks in advance,
btw, right now I am using the linksys firmware but I will switch over if I should/need to.
