Hi … new question. One computer on the network is not ours (wife’s work computer). We have to presume it has a key logger on it. Is there a way to assign a different password to that device ? Something to do with vlans? The goal is to disable access to our network by deleting the password that machine knows about. Otherwise it seems like we’ll have to change the password for all our devices or something.
Changing the password of a single device or vlan is just my approach to this problem . My goal is to make it impossible for an attacker to get on our network. Typing the password on that machine I (have to ) assume gives away the password. Is there some other way to achieve security in this situation?
So I read the manual and it appears to me that my problem has no solution. The VLANs don’t have their own passwords. If anyone has any ideas how to address this issue I’d love to hear it but honestly I don’t think this is a use case this router was designed for.
I will return it tomorrow unfortunately :(; I can tell it’s a quality product but there does seem to be a severe mismatch between my needs and its feature set. My quest for a good home office router with decent security continues !
I wish everyone at peplink the very best !!!
Ahh I had a less depressing solution…lol… run a cat6 to that computer… put that cordless drill to some use!
If there is one feature I would suggest for this wonderful router it’s this- passwords for the individual VLANs as they have for “guest networks”. I have to believe my situation is not unusual these days and in fact it’s physically plausible for someone at her work to wardrive by our house since working from home these days is not related to being “remote” anymore :(.
I am glad I lit on this “solution” and hopefully this will be a solution for other people similiarly situated.
