I have the following situation:
- Router 2 is a given. It is used by several people to go on the internet ('People we don't trust').
- We are a tiny company that is supposed to go on the internet through Router 2; we have 1 Ethernet cable coming into our room. However, because we don't want the 'People we don't trust' to access our file server, printer etc I thought we should put another router (router 1) to create a separate network.
- Is it the correct solution to use a second router for this? If I understand it correctly, putting a switch is not the correct solution as it will allow the 'people we don't trust' to acces our network. I read about VLANs but I have a hard time understanding if this is sufficiently secure.
- If it is the correct solution, how should I configure this router 1 so that we have acces to the internet, but other people do not have acces to our network. Should I do anything particular for security?
