I would personally steer clear of this particular option, due to the stated worries of others.

In the end, most ransomware and other social engineering will not get onto a system if that system is suitably protected

Rigorously follow a backup regime, to protect your data, this is the important stuff that often cannot be replaced, and the lever that ransomware uses - the rest can be reinstalled - from a system image if available, longhand from original media if not.
Follow safe web practice, install your choice of multi-layer Anti Malware system and firewall, make sure the firewall on the router is also active, and you should be safe.

In the event of a disaster, and you are infected, a system re-install from backups can take less time than faffing about removing the infection.

Just my 2 pennies

I'd appreciate some more info on this if possible. I'm out of my comfort zone here a bit.

MJF do you mean the router stuff as mine is protected by the SSID and WPA2-PSK mentioned here that is how my TP-Link is set.

Yes I follow these guidelines. I guess it is the terminology "firewall on the router is also active" that threw me.
