I am setting up my new home office and part of that was purchasing the new Soho MK3 Router. Since my office is in my home I am sharing the internet connection with the rest of the home. To prevent others in the house from getting into my work computers I want to create four separate “virtual” networks that can not be seen by each others.
- Office Computers/Devices
- Home Computers/Devices (Trusted)
- Phones/Cameras/TVs/(Non Trusted devices)
- Guest (Non Trusted)
I have been reading up on Subnets and virtual networks and I am trying to figure out where to start. Do I
Create 4 Virtual Networks with different subnet masks (see below)
Also, what do I do with the Untagged LAN line in the Networks Screen below?
Below is what I currently have. I have the Network Screen and the Office Virtual Screen. Is this correct to begin with? The next step will be configuring the ports and the wireless to use these correctly. (FYI, I have just connected the MK3 to a downstream port of my existing ASUS router to get this configured correctly before switching the house over)
