Music Computer: Local Area Network but NOT INTERNET

Does anyone know how to do this? I am looking to setup a network where my music computer can get onto the local network for file transfer purposes but not go online (viruses). Does anyone know how to do this?

Why would it go on to the internet if you did not run a browser or email program? Running software protection (like Norton or Kaspersky or whatever) can limit what other computers can do to your music computer. And it is simple enough to set up your sharing parameters so that the music computer can download from other computers but to limit what other computers can do or to what these other computers can access.

If you want to be an network admin, you can set permissions.... but i never explored this. (I'll need to soon, I'm setting up a Cloud situation.)

Set your IP configuration manually and omit the Default Gateway. That way it can only talk to machines on the local network.

um, just use a router (a router as you know has a built in switch, usually 4 ports)

with no connection to wan, you have no internet to worry about

i'd manually set the ip's on each computer
