Model: RE315
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.7 Build 210705 Rel.36290n (8583)

I have an AX1500 (AX10) router with the Guest Network configured to "allow guests to see each other."  I use the guest network to isolate my IoT devices from my main network while still allowing them to communicate with each other (thank you for including this feature in your routers!).  "Allow guests to access your local network" is NOT enabled on my router. 

 

I recently added a RE315 to my network as a OneMesh node.  With the RE315 in OneMesh mode I discovered that my main network and my guest network were able to communicate with each other.  All of the devices were visible to each other regardless of whether they were on the main network or the guest network.  I disabled "allow guests to see each other" as a test and all of the devices were still able to communicate.  Is this a bug or is this just something that just happens with OneMesh?  Is there a way to keep my guest network isolated while still using OneMesh?  

 

One more note - When I use the RE315 as a regular extender the guest network is isolated from the main network.

 

And a request - the RE315 is limited to a 15 character password.  It would be nice if that limit was increased in a future firmware update. 

 

Router:  Archer AX10 v1.20  Firmware version: 1.2.1 Build 20210513 Rel. 79745(5553)

Extender:  RE315 v1.0  Firmware version: 1.0.7 Build 210705 Rel.36290n (8583)

 

Thanks!

Update: I also tested this with an RE300 in OneMesh mode and had the same results. Devices connected to the OneMesh RE300 and devices connected to the guest network were able to communicate with each other. When the RE300 was in regular extender mode both networks were isolated.
