Basically I have my own personal network where I share some resources between my computers.

A family member wants to join his PC wirelessly to my network (I can't say no). The problem is I don't him to be able to access any of my files, not get my computers infected with viruses through his computer or something.

Any idea how I can protect my network? I use a Cisco WAG160N router btw.

Appreciate your help.

The Linksys-Cisco WAG160N has a built-in firewall feature (based on the user manual).

You can try fiddling with the features there to allow your family member to only access the internet but not other parts of your network.
