comment What is the best way to restrict network access for one machine on a home LAN?
The only way is if a user on Machine C accesses the 2nd router and changes all the settings so he is on the same IP range as the 1st router. But neither side can scan other ranges without proper hacking or changing settings in the routers. Take a look at pfsense. It might seem daunting and complciated. But it gives you SOOOO much flexibilty in how you want to exactly setup networks. Plus there are so many security things you can do to help prevent malicious activity. It is a router and firewall tightly combined to give you maximum security and configuration.

Using the 2 routers - the second one needs to be one like a internet router. You the cable into 2nd router WAN port and into 1st router LAN. Because they are on different IP's neither network will be able to cross talk. There is no special configuration! 1st router will see 2nd router as a "PC" but all the PC's on router 1 cannot see the other network because you have to set it up to use another IP address. It is a bit strange but it does work! I have done it many times- especially when there are 2 or more Internet connection.

Look- End of the day firewalls is not the correct answer for long term and security reliability. Like I said already several times the OP will need another device- Did I not? I did, I did... face palm

I withdraw my -1 just because I misread the answer. Really @11k rep you would have thought you knew how to format an answer nicely. You deserve -1 just for that.

Is that not what I said in my answer? You need another router/swithc that will translate network traffic to the gateway! Besides I re read this terribly unformatted and cluttered answer and that is the same thing Rich is saying. What are you even on about cpast? Firewalls IS NOT THE WAY TO GO.

So Virtual Netorks are a waste of time then? Tell that to CISCO which specifically created such netowrks to help ISOLATE computers on the same NETWORK. Not firewalls. Your concept is completly messed up. He is not trying to protect the PC's from WAN attacks but ISOLATE! Bleeding heck

Yes! TWO NETWORKS! Not the same network like the OP is trying todo. My answers shows how to do this- And I DID say he needs extra bits. How is your answer creating 2 Networks?

Yes I said that- He might need another switch or router. You just being spiteful now. This is the industry standard for Isolating computers on a network. Trying to get some homebrewed hackish methods is really bad advise.

No ways! firewalls are used to protect a SINGLE computer and not ISOLATE a computer from a network. I use firewalls to allow IP's to connect to my Database and firewalls to Block botnets. But all local computers are trusted and firewalls do not really help.

-1 Firewalls are used to block unauthorised access. Not isolate machines!

For home use the only thing is using hosts files. Otherwise you need a domain controller if using windows and complex dns rules. Placing a the machine in DMZ does not block anything. It allows ALL wan traffic. There is no easy way unless you use another router on a separate IP range that piggy backs on the default gateway.
