Is this routing plan secure?


Could anyone please check my routing plan? I'm fairly inexperienced in public network security and would like some help.

I am soon to move into a house share with several other flatmates. We will have cable internet (NTL) at 4mbs. I would like to set up a community wireless network so that I can share the internet connection freely over 802.11b (using NoCatAuth, a wirelessB Router and a homemade omni antenna).

This is my routing plan:

Will this be secure?
* Will my computers be safely secure from community wireless users?
* Will my housemates' computers be safe too?
* Will my computers be safely secure from my housemates' computers?

Is there, in fact, a better way of routing this setup?

Also, is there a way of limiting the bandwidth available to the wireless community users to stop my housemates getting p*ssed off?!

Could anyone please help me? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
