Locking access to web

Post by Don Wells »

    I am currently running Windows 7 but have just purchased a new laptop running Windows 10. I would like to continue using the Win7 machine with access to my homegroup, but without access to the internet; yet still allowing full web access by the Win 10 machine.
    Is this feasible?

Any guidance will be deeply appreciated.

You may be able to configure your router/firewall to do this. What device is it?
Alternatively you could create a routing table on the Windows 7 PC that sends everything intended for the Internet to an internal loopback address. But this would not be so easy to maintain.
