What is AP Isolation?

AP Isolation is used to protect the device against attacks from other device in the same network. With this function enabled, the device isolates all the connected clients within the same wireless network from each other, which enhances the network security of users. As the picture shown below, with AP Isolation enabled, the two hosts in the same wireless network cannot communicate with each other.

How Do I Configure AP Isolation on Pharos Products?

TP-Link Pharos products support AP Isolation and the default setting of AP Isolation is disabled. To enable the function, choose the menu Wireless > Advanced Wireless Settings to load the following page and click Enable.

  • Note: AP Isolation is not available in Client mode.

If the device works in the Access Point mode and Multi-SSID is enabled, you can enable AP Isolation for a specific SSID in the SSID list as the picture below shown.
