'Public' network protection enough?

Please excuse my extreme level of ignorance, but I'm a very new NIS 2010 user! (Previously used Zone Alarm)

 I connect both my laptop & desktop computers (not at the same time) either directly to a satellite modem without a wireless router or via USB mobile Broadband & do not want to share any files or printers.  I have chosen the 'Public' Network option.  Is this the best level of protection for me?  Should I also click on the 'Restrict' option?  I want to feel confident I have the best level of protection but still be able to access internet functions.

Also are there any manual configuration changes I should make or should I just let the program do it all for me?

One more query, on my Windows XP Desktop, how can I check if it is in the 'Home' or 'Public' network?  It is easy to find on my Windows 7 Laptop, but I have not been able to find it on the older XP computer.

Many thanks in advance!

Re: 'Public' network protection enough?

are you asking about the option when you create a network under the operating system? That is, a Microsoft option? Otherwise which option within NIS are you referring to please?

Re: 'Public' network protection enough?

I would suggest to keep the default settings as it is. Norton 2010 have application intelligence baked in, allowing it to make security decisions so that you don’t have to. The Firewall in Norton 2010 intelligently makes security decisions for you—allowing you to use your computer without you needing to be a security expert. With Automatic Program Control, every program requesting network access is scanned via all available scanning technology carried by the Norton product (e.g. Behavioral Heuristic Scan, AntiVirus scan, etc.) before granting network access.  A rule will be created if it passed all scan filters and Smart Firewall uses this rule as reference for granting permission for the program to access the Internet.  So, there is no need for you to check each time whenever any program requires the Internet access when using the Norton 2010 .

The Norton 2010's intelligent intrusion prevention technology adds an extra layer of security by looking inside the data coming into your PC and blocking suspicious traffic. Intrusion prevention technology examines the content of Internet traffic and detects online security breaches, which can hide in approved Internet connections. When an intrusion is detected, Norton program automatically triggers the appropriate action (block all Internet access, for example), depending on the threat.

Thanks.  I am referring to the Network location options i.e. Home Network, Work Network or Public Network.  Are these options actually part of Microsoft rather than NIS?
