    Also rip CN i would be carful what internet you use over there they doing all sorts of unethical stuff. I personally wouldn't connect to someones internet unless i know they lease that line first hand.
    What do you mean by "CN"?

    Also, if I use a VPN (for example ProtonVPN), would that add security regarding the issue at hand?

    No, that's not my case, thank God, I am in a free democratic country. The only link I provided is the ZTE manufacturer which like many other manufacturers are based in China
    In my home I have a Cisco router, 100% american

    Ok Korea then lol i know they are a democracy and close to China. You don't have to answer this. Korea is just as bad with its online surveillance and you should be wary about using free internet especially if it is in shared accommodation which i know is common in both these countries.

    North Korea, yes, a pure democracy where you always have to vote for one little overweight candidate
    No, my internet here is not free, there;s a monthly ISP bill for this internet, the only weird thing is the way they installed this network not having a local firewall for each customer in the building.

    ok yep well that confirms it you basically have a mesh router that hooks up to a central node where the firewall will be which means it will be disabling any features on your end like firewall and other stuff you need to access to pass the test because you are in mesh mode or its just a mesh router not a dual purpose router,the landlord offers internet to their tenants.

    There is not much you can do aside from what you have already done on your computers local firewall which is good.

    But the internet bill from the ISP comes directly to the owner of this apartment, to his name, the other apartments in this building belong to other owners. So there's no centralized ownership that is later split into the various units.

    Well then you are looking at the wrong device like is there two routers? clearly the one you have been talking about is a mesh router or at least in mesh mode which is no good to you. it still means you are behind the main router which is the one you need to be working on.

    I am looking at the only device that is inside this apartment I'm renting. Basically, my PC is wired to one of the back LAN ports in the modem, and the WAN port has a thin fiber optic cable coming from the outside. I also connect via WiFi with my iPad/iPhone to this router. That's all there is to it.
    Probably at the ground floor there is a main router that controls all of the modems/routers in the various units of this building?

    Well the complication is that it looks like you are in mesh mode and that router looks to be a mesh router which means in concrete that there is a main router somewhere which is where the firewall is going to be and the overall issue of the thread topic.

    But you then say you are paying for this service directly through the ISP which would mean that you should have a dedicated router not a mesh one and on a basic level own and control the infrastructure to a degree like not actually own it but i mean you have all the parameters needed between your computer and the internet so access to routing etc.

    These two contradict each other because atm it sounds like you don't know where the main router is. Sorry confusion at play too and why i keep assuming.

    I am not sure how ISP's work where you are but i assume that they are similar here as to where you are. The only other thing i can think of is that you may be on CG nat.

    I don't have first hand knowledge of cgnat and never used it but i think access to the firewall would be disallowed because you share one IP across multiple customers.

    I think without knowing its hard to say but i would find out from your isp what service you are paying for if you are unsure and then go from there. TBH i am not really sure at this point just that it looks like you are in mesh mode which means you are behind another router at some point.
