If I connect to my own router, will I also get the security from my home computer?

I have a home based computer, and a router so I can connect my laptop to my internet.
If I have safely connected my laptop to my router, will I also get the security on my laptop that I have on my home computer?
I have cogeco, and I want to know if it would also go on to my laptop since their connected.

    No. Computer-based security covers only the computer it’s on. This includes anti-malware software as well as firewall software. Each computer or laptop should have its own protection.

    Hope that helps.

    you wont get the same spyware on you desktop to your laptop. i have a desktop then another desktop connected via wifi and i caught a virus on that one if you want protection on your laptop i reccomend avg free. as you may guess its free and it works great!
