    Hi all,

    Does the TP-Link Archer C5400X actually isolate its guest network from all clients (wired and wireless) on the main (non-guest) network?

    OR

    Are clients on the guest network able to access or at the very least ping clients on the main non guest network?

    Are there any users who can verify the guest network is in fact isolated or not, and for the purposes of this post I’ll define isolation as not even allowing a ping from guest to main let alone higher access.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, I did look at the manual and saw the settings but netgear’s equivalent router has the same options but it was reported pings from guest client to main network client are successful.

    I’m looking for someone in the real world to verify functionality.
