    Hello there, i have osx im using for net browsing and my main rig is a dedicated studio for djing and production,

    I wish too network my computers but i do not want any antivirus clogging up my studio machine so i can acheive the best latency times for midi synths


    is it possible too block net access on my studio machine yet still have my 220gb wav collection available on my network so i want too have the machines networked but no internet access on the studio machine as i dont want any trojans clogging my system

    my router is a belkin wireless n F5D86334

    Yes, just setup the connection manually and don't put a default gateway on the studio machine :)

    Remember though that there are some virus and malware programmes that could jump across your network internally.

    Its not just a case of making sure it cant access the internet.

    If the machine with internet access is fully protected you should be ok however :p

    you aren't going to get any viruses that will "jump" between osx > windows, you'll be fine.
