Having your computer connected to the internet means that it can be accessed from other computers also on the internet. The best way to secure your computer is to put a firewall, router, or gateway PC between you and the Microlink radio. This will hide you from anyone else on the internet -- they will not be able to see behind the firewall. If that is not an option, there are various programs you can install, such as Norton Internet Security, that should prevent most suspicious actions.

Windows Printer and File sharing is also a danger . if you have this enabled, anyone on your network can see your shared folders. If you are not behind a firewall, router, or gateway PC, this may expose your files to other people on the internet. To turn file and print sharing off, go to the properties of your internet connection, and uncheck the box next to 'file and print sharing'.
