We use a fios-quantum-gateway-router since 2018. I needed to buy another network extender so that a new smart device in the kitchen would work -- the FIOS router's guest network wouldn't work reliably that far.
The new Netgear (EX2800) extender has two SSIDs. I used one for a new 'guest' network only for smart devices near it, as don't want device companies snooping our other network data.
I am far from a networking export.
How may I limit access of the current smart-home device in the kitchen so it is separated from rest of network?
- Is there a way to configure the new 'guest' SSID from the extension router so it is segregated from the rest of the network?
- Or do I need to do something to each specific device that I want to limit access of, maybe a subnet on the FIOS router? Please help with specific things to do in FIOS router config if you can, or mention the relevant words at least.
Thanks in advance
