    Hi

    At 1 of my sites, I'd like to have the isolation turned off. Is it possible?

    I think it cannot disable this feature because client should not communicate to each other.
    This is security concern.

    Hi - if your network is created as Type 'Guest' - client isolation is turned on - and even more, you are not able to reach anything within private address space (10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16). 

    If you would like to have communication between wireless (and wired) clients, you should create your network as Type = Employee, where you will loose option of using Captive portal.

    Hi!

    If my device is in the Employee network (and has a private address, of course), will it be able to communicate with a device in the Guest network? For example, I would have an android station in the Employee network, which should manage IOT devices in the Guest network.

    @Alyona Sol Employee networks do not have isolation and Guest networks do have isolation turned on. What you can do is create two employee networks and as long as your router/gateway allows communication between the networks you should be go.
