OK going a little crazy with what I am seeing. Created Guest Wifi (index1-100.0) and working as expected isolating traffic from primary subnet but Guest Wifi (index2-10.0) is being place on the same subnet as primary. Same if I changed it to Guest Wifi (index3). What is happening?

RT-AX86U Pro - 3004.388.4

Your help is greatly appreciated. My sanity thanks you.
 
So no isolation with other Guest Wifi. Trying to create a Guest and IoT Wifi. Guess my options are using iptables, Any suggestions or links of interest,

Thanks for your help and immense contribution to the community.

Isolation is done at the ebtables level, rather than just by using a different subnet (which is not really any isolation, a client would simply have to use a static IP to bypass it).

Are you saying a client could set a primary network IP address and still connect to the GN1 network then talk to the other primary net devices?

All I'm saying is having a separate DHCP range does not isolate a network. You need further isolation at a lower level.
 
For me, Isolation does not work on Guest 2...
