When selecting networks on LAN ports (x1, x2,etc.) which wireless network does it correspond to if you have different SSIDs for 2.4 and 5ghz on the same X1? Or are they the same network but just with different SSIDs? If so is there no benefit (network isolation) to using seperate SSIDS for 2.4 and 5ghz wireless?
All devices you connect to the same VLAN will be on the same network. If you connect a device on X1 from the 2.4GHz band, a device from the 5GHz band, and a device on an Ethernet port, all of them will be on the same network. They’ll be able to talk to each other. If you want to isolate the devices from each other, you can check the “Enable WiFi client isolation” box in Wireless Settings.
ok so it seems having Client isolation checked on say x1 2.4ghz but not checked on x1 5ghz (with a different SSID) still isolates the devices connected to the 5ghz network?
is this normal? this is occurring for me.
@moral That is the correct behavior. When you turn on client isolation, it is turned on for the VLAN, which may encompass both WiFi bands and wired connections. Maybe the UI should be updated to auto-check client isolation on the other band when it is checked for one band.
