    Situation: I have an old ASUS RT-N66U for my home network. I want to upgrade due to working from home, probably to the AC86U, or AX86U.

    Guest for IOT devices

    Created a guest ssid for my smart home devices. Works great as long as I allow intranet access. However allowing intranet also allows guest devices to access my main ssid devices. Separating them was the whole point. Well most of it. Disallowing intranet on the guest causes some devices to...
