block LAN access to a wired device while keeping Internet access
Hi, new here.
I recently got an R7800 Nighthawk router, and I am wondering if / how I could achieve the following.
I have a solar system monitoring device that needs Internet access. I want to have it wired for reliability but also interference issues. That said I would prefer if it did not have access to my LAN, so I would like to give it only Internet access but not LAN access.
I dont think the router can do that, but I am wondering if there is a way to achieve that result with a smart switch or something like that.
Any input is welcome

I wanted to edit the post, but apparently you have a very narrow window to do that...
Reading about VLAN, would that be the way to separate the monitoring device from my LAN while retaining Internet access for it, and if so would the VLAN feature of the router actually do that for me?
