Virtual users does seem like the solution though, try having a search around for some beginners guides.

comment how to create dual network from same modem
The equipment in use is (very likely) not capable of doing what is needed to segregate the data into two distinct networks. There's lots of workarounds and solutions, but they'll mostly involve more kit. The best solution would be a second access point on another wifi channel, and the firewall built into the router in use currently. Another workaround would be wifi station isolation, if it even supports that. If it was my private traffic though I'd want it on its own device, and not wifi, either.

comment Skype audio always goes 'robotic' for the same user?
Maybe hes getting bored with the call ? chhhh You're breaking up ! chhhh. No idea sorry, sounds like its downsampling the audio over time to work out the best quality level, but multiple connections discounts that. super odd.

comment Is it possible to use a laptop mornitor as an extended display of another machine?
what you describe wont work. Most (nearly all) laptops have a video out not a video in. You can display the laptop's display on another monitor (or projector) but you cant (as the OP wanted) display a desktop's output on a laptop.
