Wireless Internet, Wired Network...

Hi all, thought this is the best place to ask...

Is there a way to plug my computer into my LAN and have access to my home network but avoid using its internet access altogether? So that I can use a separate wireless network for internet?

You could consider a "Virtual Private Network"?

Cheers!

The router can deny you outside internet access. Set a filter for it.

The advantage is you can have two seperate networks, one with Internet access and one without. I would you suggest you Google VPN or search the MS sites for tips on how to setup a VPN.

We would need to know the make and model of your router (you have two, one wired and one wireless?) before we can help there.

It would be called IP Filter - to deny LAN IP addresses access to the internet.

Alternatively, you can set it's firewall to do the same thing.
