I will be bringing home a laptop from work. I do not however want to connect it to my existing home network for obvious security reasons.
So, I would like to set-up an internet connection for the biz laptop that is on a completely separate network, or something to that affect, than my existing computers. I have been reading up on this & much of what I read is over my head. It seems as though the simplest & most effective way to do this is to use 3 routers & one modem, yet from what I understand there's a bit more to it than that. Anyway, here is my present set-up:
-ISP modem hardwired to wireless Mac Airport router
-2 older XP desktops hardwired to wireless Mac Airport router
-1 MacBook connected to Airport router wireless
I would like to add one wireless laptop to my internet connection as described above. Keep in mind that with my present set-up, all 3 machines share one internet connection but are not actually networked. The machines run independently & that is the way I need to keep it.
I hope someone can walk me thru this without too much trouble...for both of us :-) Thank you!
