Hi David,

It's easy to do with the right equipment.
With a Sonicwall router (yes it's expensive) you can
assign a different network address to any of the LAN
ports. If you would like more detail let me know.

[PCTECH] Create a hardwired isolated network:


I've been trying to figure out how to do this for months, but have had
no luck.

Since I'm now working from home (as many of us are), I want to isolate
my work laptop from my home network.

The work laptop needs full access to the internet, and I don't want to
use WiFi, but I don't want it to be able to access my home network.

I know I can put it on a guest WiFi network with isolation, but I want
to keep it on hardwire.

I do have a switch that supports VLAN's, but I'm not sure how I can use

Any suggestions?
