Archer C6 in Access Point Mode and Guest Separation
Hello everyone :-)
sorry for the bad english, i used a translator.
I configured the Router as an Access Point, to extend connectivity in a room away from the Main Router (a D-Link DVA-5592 provided by the Internet Manager; :-\ )
The connection between the two routers is via LAN cable.
Everything works regularly except one thing: the Guest network is not separate from the main network, a particular one to the wired one (where I have some PCs and a NAS)
For reasons of security I would like to separate them, because I happen to connect external PCs on which I have to do assistance (typically Maintenance, Updates and cleaning of Computer Viruses).
I thought the problem was due to the fact that DHCP, with the router configured as an "Access Point", is the Main router that assigns IPs.
But also by activating the DHCP of the TP-LInk Router (appropriately configured so that there were overlaps between the 2 DHCP) the Guest network gives access to the main network and to the wired devices.
Obviously I have disabled "Allow guests to see each other" but this only affects devices that connect to the Guest network, but access to Wired devices remains.
I know I could probably solve it by configuring it as a "Router" but this would create problems for me with PCs connected directly to the Main Router that would not see PCs connected to the TP-Link Router and NAS.
Thanks in advance for the answers :-)
