I have an installation where I have 3 Lab workstations running just one application connected to the internet for updates thru a Linksys router. The customer would like his office desktop to share this internet access, but I do not want the office machine to have access to the 3 lab machines. I've disinfected the office machine before and want to make sure that the lab workstations are protected from contamination.
Considering the diagram below (both routers are Linksys 4 port):
Internet--Router1--Lab (192.168.1.0/24) Existing
Router2--Office (192.168.2.0/24) Proposed
a)Will this isolate the lab LAN from the office desktop, or does the internet connection have to start at Router2 ? Or must I have a 3rd router like holger12345's solution at:
b)Should I also disable some services on the office machine, like Computer Browser and TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper?
Thanks in advance
