I have a wifi network on the first floor of my house and one that repeats the signal on the second floor. (repeater bridge)
To the second I connect my television.
The subject is that I do not want those who connect to the first network to send me a video so it can be played on TV.
I tried with repeater (no bridge) but the network works very badly that way.
Is there any other way?
maybe with vlan ??
maybe with firewall??
(i just want isolated the tv from router1 or at lease ther dhcp)
By the way the tv is connected by cable (it could also connect by wifi also, not a problem, although for the cable TV prefers)
router1 (wifi for first floor) --------------> router2 (ethernet for tv, and wifi for second floor)
Thanks for your help.

Can you configure a virtual wifi interface on the router on the first floor and add a "Guest" network? If so, and provided none of the devices on either floor need to connect to devives on the other floor, just add the "guest" network (perhaps use a better SSID than "guest"); deny it access to the existing network; give the first floor devices the "guest" password; and change the existing wifi password. Problem solved?
