I need to use a shared LAN with other people I don't know, which I can't control and about which I know nothing about. That means I can't change settings in the router and I don't know how isolated will my PC be from the rest.
I was wondering what the best option would be to secure myself and I came across this question, which suggest using two routers to isolate devices on a network. My question is:
Will using another router work in my case? That is, can i use another router without access to the main one?
If not, do I have any other options? I know not using the network at all would be great, but it is not an option unfortunately.
If yes, what should I look for in a router to buy?
PS: I use Windows 10 and both connections (router to LAN and router to PC) would be wired (Ethernet cable).
Edit: I have learnt I will not need to identify myself to use the network
