You can accomplish this much easier by simply using
a firewall. I like OpenBSD firewalls in layer 2
bridging mode. Put the firewall in-line between the
router and the rest of the network, no other network
changes needed.

If your not well versed in routing I wouldn't recommend
going around making a bunch of changes to a system that
I assume has been more or less working for more than
a decade.
