Network blocking

I've just installed a wireless network so two computers can both use the internet however am concerned about leaking of files between them.
How do you ensure that only internet access is used and you can't access files on other computers and stuff (as networking implies)

Quite simply do not "share" anything on either machine.

Alternatively I guess you could re-name the Workgroup on 1 machine, they would then not see each other at all.

In the "Wireless Network Connection" Properties, untick the box "File & Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".
