security with house guest using wifi or plugging into router

If we have a house guest that is using our wifi, does our router prevent them from accessing our computers or doing anything malicious to our system?  

How secure is our system if they plug into the router?  We have MacAfee, but not with web protection.

Thank you for any advice!

    Does your router not offer a guest network?  You could configure your router to only assign a specific (static) IP address to the guest and block the address on your devices.  Better yet...don't allow the guest on your network.
