    Going to have to leave TP-Link

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Well rats. I thought I'd found a good source of routers etc in tp-link. Cisco are too much for many apps, and netgear failed on me too many times.
    I just discovered that a tp-link access point has no real guest isolation. It has SSID Isolation, which just means people on that SSID can't see one another,
    but any of them can see other things on the lan. I was going to send tech support an email and ask about that but realized there's no sense in doing it
    since I have almost never gotten a response. Questions posted on these forums often go unanswered, like no tp-link techs watch them.
    Trying to get chat to work from the website just goes into endless wait. Even if I select that it's a pre-sales question, which you would think they would want to answer.
    Too bad. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

    I don't know any AP which offers an isolated guest network and a firewall. A WiFi router does all this stuff and those devices usually offer isolated guest networks, subnets and a firewall.

    But this subforum isn't about APs or WiFi routers at all.

    I got an offer of a call from tech support. Good. Of course they could have just answered my email question, but still good.

    R1D2, I should have used another forum, but business routers have been the focus of my hunt for good equipment.
    I think every other AP I've used offered client isolation in the guest wireless.

    I see. Much of the confusion here is about terminology: a router isn't an AP and client isolation isn't the same as a client's network separation. I think, tech support can help you to find the right device for your needs.
