Guest Network - AP Mode - Isolation?
2022-04-08 01:30:11
Model: Deco M9 Plus  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have my Deco9 setup in AP mode with a firewall behind it doing DHCP and such.

 

I have both guest and "regular" network being served DHCP - one IP range.

 

There seems to be some undocumented AP Isolation mode setup... I can't seem to have items on my guest network be communicating with my regular network when it's in AP mode.

 

Is this something I can configure?

  @mikeinet 

Thank you very much for the feedback and sorry for the delay.

Just to be clear, the issue you have is that, when Deco M9 plus is on access point mode, the guest network clients of Deco are not able to access the regular network of the firewall DHCP server, right?

Since if you are talking about the main network of Deco itself, there is an option "isolated from main network" on Deco APP>More>WiFi and if you do not wish them to be isolated, you could leave it disabled.

 

Best regards.

  @David-TP - thanks for your reply

everyone gets dhcp without issue

 

the issue is that guest network users are isolated from main network 

 

I see no option to disable this where you noted to look in the app

Hi, can I have a picture of the guest network settings on your APP, such as

By the way, I see there is a Deco M3W under your tp-link ID and is it still online and connected to the mesh since the firmware of Deco M3W does not support this feature yet.

this be availiable?  @David-TP

Hi, I am sorry that I did not know the ETA either.

And if you do not wish the guest network and main network of Deco are separated under access point mode, you could unplug Deco M3W first, left Deco M9 plus only, then you will see this option on the Deco APP, and you could turn it off.
