I could really use your help..
I'm trying to make sure I have a clean connection.(a clean eth) and I need to get it done really soon.
I have a new laptop and a new router.
My Q is:
If I don;t have a different network and share a router with someone at home, is there anyway of making the shared router and my laptop secure from other devices also using said router?
A guest option could be a solution? I have read sth about giving a different wifi pass to guests(or my brother ) than the one you use. Can this possibly work for a connection via cable to the router also(for devices that aren;t mine and could possibly be infected), not just wifi? To make a guest option on my router for both wifi and cable connection to router from devices I don;t personally use. By this guest option I would separate myself from other devices I dont use(brother;s etc)?
If not possible, can I have two routers on the same network(same IP address?) And would that work to keep my router and laptop secure or does sharing the same network impose a security risk anyways?
Also, someone mentioned I should use a VPN.. would this solve the issue of sharing a router with other devices that are possibly infected and could infect me?
I think it would make sure I have a clean network as someone could still have tampered with my connection somehow, even if I change router and laptop, but for the router itself and my new PC's security, would it cover me completely?
I really need to get this done. Speedy and complete answers would be very much appreciated.
