Thanks for the answer and for the extra links, very useful!

comment Enabling port forwarding on port 53 on a DNS server, why is it a risk?
@edvinas.me a) What do you mean? b) Does it matter? I have a DNS server and I was wondering what the security risks would be after enabling port forwarding on port 53. This is a purely theoretical question, so there is nothing to accomplish here.

comment Should I set different passwords for different Wi-Fi bands?
Interesting point. It might make more sense to separate the two networks by criticality rather than guest/non-guest though, with a more complex password for the band containing the most critical devices. I am more concerned of attacks from the outside than from the inside, if you know what I mean.

I see what you mean. Of course, my comment makes sense if you have two locks with the same security level. And the attack surface would be smaller if I only had one door :P

Actually, the attack surface is the same when using one or two passwords. The attack surface would decrease if I disabled one of the two bands. Also, if I use two pwd's and one of the two gets cracked, the second one wouldn't be compromised immediately, that's the point of having a second one :D But I get your point.

But the connections in both cases will be encrypted right? So the only problem is the increased attack surface?

Can there be security risks because of this?

Good clear answer, thank you. Just out of curiosity, do you have any sources to link to about the "many ISPs have consistently betrayed the trust of their users"?
