Separate an “Audio Network” from my main network
I don’t know much about networking but I’m wondering what would be the best way to separate an audio network from a regular network using the same cable. I’ll try to explain what I mean..
I have a very basic home network (router – switch – devices) and I was wondering if there was an easy way to make a private network within that that allows only 2 computers to communicate and cannot access the web?
I wondered if Subnet Masks or VLANs may be the answer?
Could I set up some kind of virtual network adapter on my PC that uses a different Subnet to the one that I’m using for my main network so that it only talks to the other PC with the same thing set up?
I need to be able to differentiate between them so that I can tell my audio software to look at the network I have set up for audio and not the one that has web access. If it helps to know, the software I am using is Dante.
^I realise this probably makes very little sense… probably just proves how new I am to the networking field.
