I have a small home network that I use primarily to share internet access among three computers, each one used by a different person. I just rearranged my own setup and it made more sense to move my printer onto the router instead of plugging directly into my machine as I had been doing for a few years.
What I want to do now is restrict access at the router so only my computer can use that printer. How do I go about it? All the help info I have found online deal with modifying network settings at the user or group level within windows 7.
Printer is a Canon MP970, router is a D-Link DIR-655.
On the web interface for the router, go to the "Advanced" tab and click on the "SECURESPOT" link on the side. In the "Info" area there should be a link to configure the service, which should include access controls.
