So while the guest WiFi does do as you wish, a wired connection does not. And will not until you get into managed (Ethernet) port products.
Since this is how it is with the product you noted, all I can do is confirm.
As to your check, I will only offer a simple test. Try to connect to another machine on your network when you are on the guest WiFi. Also try to ping the machines that are not on the Guest network.
I want to make sure my wired and WiFi connection are protected from others who use it. I have an old ZTE router modem ADSL and I;m not sure if it can truly enable this.
There are multiple SSID options(four I think) but I don't know if they truly separate my network from guest's safety wise or if it's just some semi ssid option thing as it doesn't say guest network anywhere on configuration page. And its a low quality router modem.
I was told enabling a guest network would separate my network and my devices from the guest's(other user's).
I have a ZTE ZXHN H108N modem router. Do you think if you could check if the multiple ssid is truly a guest network?
So I did this:
I enabled hide network on SSID 1(my future to be protected network and one I am on now and have been up to now I think, tho i am on wire now) and enabled it;s isolation. Should I have done that to SSID 1 or to SSID2? or both?
SSID 2 I enabled. Should I have enabled isolation for it too? Or just it and not SSID 1?
If I separate WiFi my wired connection is still not secure..
Apart from the following, do I need to enable sth for the wire connection to be secure? I understand connecting via wire by other devices is bad and should try to stop, but if I enable the guest wifi option does it also separate my wired connection from the guest using wifi?
The following is:
Do I need to set a PPP pass through for devices to not be able to connected via ethernet w/o a password?
I had reset the router and it automatically reconnected w/o asking for any credentials.. Is this because PPP pass thru was not enabled?
I tried enabling it.. and it would not ask for pw when connecting via ethernet after disconnecting.
I entered what I assume is my PPP user and PW. It also asked me to enter connection name, vci/vpi which I assume is 8/35. I changed trigger connection from always to manual and authentication type from auto to chap. I entered new connection name but I think I did not change connection name(first at the top)
If PPP passthru isnt it, is there another option that can be enabled to stop wired connections from other devices?
If not, can I disable the option to connect automatically via wire on my desktop which is old and doesnt have an updated antivirus as I wont always be there to stop others. Can I check this w/o connecting to internet?
