Hi, I know I can achieve this with firewall rules and allowing only certain MAC addresses but: I have a rather involved home networked of ALL WIRED 6 pcs, nas boxes, media players and tvs, printers etc. What I want to do is infect a pc to learn in practice how to treat it (im in uni here). It would need internet access but no LAN. I have a separate modem and router, and a remote secondary router to act as a wireless access point when required. 

 

Have spare routers which im thinking to hook one into the existing network to feed this one infected pc. Static ip and no nat. Would that be safely isolated enough from the rest of the lan.

 

Thanks for looking

check to see if your current primary router has a DMZ port/function. a DMZ is a physically or logically segregated port on a router that will keep the traffic separate. anything on a DMZ will just route out to the WAN ip and not across the LAN.
