Question

Router Bridge mode security, shared connections

Hi

Please advise me how to secure my router in bridge mode.
I plugged my cisco linksys router to a public shared network. I would like to isolate my router and protect all the connected devices.

The router already has a strong password, it is enough?

Thank you

Answer
In bridge mode?

Then it's just like the devices are on that LAN so only your newest networker would thing this is any protection for the devices.

In short, the password for the router is fine but it's not a router at this point as it's in bridge mode.

I'd take care in my words since you have a bridge, not a router according to your post.

Thank you for the quick answer

What you advise me in this situation? there is another setup for the router in this case?

I'll write

Go with what works. Since putting devices on a LAN, hotspot and such is all about your good behavior, there is nothing to be be gained but painful issues if you change it.
