    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.

    @sola 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.
