Default Security on a wireless network

Hello all,

I might be in a situation soon where I'll be using my wireless laptop for internet access in a private home. What I'm wondering is how secure my computer will be to others with access to the home network. Will someone in the house be able to track what sites I visit, whom I email, or get other information about my internet usage?

Thanks.

Well it matters on what type of router/switch you have.

Give us some details, what type of router is it?

I personally like MAC filtering. It works well, its fairly easy to set up, and its crazy hard to get into.
