Isolate WIFI from wired network

I have an Xfinity XB6 gateway.  I also have my own wired router connected to the primary ethernet port on the gateway.  I want to isolate all WIFI traffic thru the XB6 from the remainder of my network.   My Blink cameras, Smartthings hub, and Amazon devices are all WIFI; and I would like to prevent access to anything else on my network, in case one of those systems are hacked.

The XB7 gateway has multiple ehernet ports, would this isolation be easier with an updated gateway?

There isn't much info on the internal security features of the gateway.  I ask for any guidance on this question.

Thanks.

Hello please message me with your Xfinity account number and full name. I am not really understanding what you are asking of us.  I believe you are just trying to use your wireless devices only connected to the XB6?

Re: Isolate WIFI from wired network

I want to use the XB6 WIFI as a sort of "guest" network.  I want to create the guest network  isolated my wired and wireless (I have my own WAP and wired router).  I would connect my Amazon Echo, Samsung Smartthings, and Blink cameras to the XB6 WIFI; and I would then like to isolate the XB6 WIFI from the remainder of my home networks.  I would use the ethernet jack on the XB6 for the WAN connection to my router.
