Isolating devices on wireless network

I am using a shared wi-fi/router and I'm looking to isolate my devices from other devices on the network, so they can't see each other. I recently bought tp-link n300 wireless repeater, hoping that I can connect it up the shared router set it up to isolate all my devices from the shared router, but its very basic and does not have wireless isolation options (or any DHCP server options for that matter which I believe will have the same effect but I'm unsure). Does anyone have any recommendations? I don't mind if I isolate all the devices when theyre connected to the extender or just isolate extender devices from shared router. I can't change any settings on the shared router.

set up a second router and disable SSID broadcast and use WPA2. connect all the devices you want isolated to that.

if someone figures out the SSID and the password they'll still be able to connect, but unless they have access to the router (or you tell them) that shouldn't happen.

any router made in the past decade will be able to do that. I'd imagine there are routers that let you set up two SSIDs too and only broadcast one if you rather go that route, but I don't know of any off the top of my head and any recommendation I gave you would just be what I got off Google.
