    Prevent network sharing between Router and modem
    « on: January 07, 2018, 08:23:49 PM »
    How could I go about isolating my WI-FI router from network sharing with my ISP modem. I use a seperate wifi router for my personal devices and leave the ISP wifi for my family to use. How can I make my personal router private from the ISP router and only communicate internet access through Ethernet?

          Everything is shared once connected through an Ethernet port I can see devices connected on the ISP router from devices connected on my private router and vice versa. I want to limit interaction to strictly internet only similar to how guest wifi does. Maybe a guest Ethernet port if that makes sense

            Up till now, the Guest networks I had run across, in consumer routers, all worked basically the same, although some routers offer far more control over them than others. Guest networks are defined just like the private Wi-Fi network(s) but with their own name (SSID), encryption (WEP, WPA or WPA2) and password.
            Or so I thought. A recent article by Chris Hoffman at How-To Geek describes a security omission in the Guest networks created by Linksys Smart Wi-Fi and Belkin routers.
