Ubuntu herzaman güzeldir
You mentioned changing routers, and only using the ISP-provided one. But you could use that plus your own one. I use two routers, which results in better security.
I have the ISP router connected directly to the Internet. It has its own subnet, e.g. 192.168.1.x
The second router is set up with a different subnet, e.g. 192.168.2.x and uses DHCP to get an IP address from the first router.
PCs are connected to the second router. Anything that is not a PC or similar, like my TV with apps, or if you have IoT devices, are connected to the first router.
You set the PC to get an IP address from the second router, but it cannot connect to anything on the first, other than the Internet.
Any hacker who hacks into your first router or anything attached to it, cannot get to your PC.
Some ISP routers do not have good firmware, hence we only connect the PC to the second router where we can control the firmware.
This setup gives good security and best use of routers.
Also, you can put WiFi for guests and IoT devices only on the first, and WiFi for yourself on the second.
