Why the Clients in the Guest Network unable to communicate between each other?

By design, in order to restrict the Guest clients' communication between each other, "deny inter user bridging" is enabled for Guest Network.

Benefits of enabling "deny inter-user-bridging"

  • When inter-user bridging is denied, the clients can connect to the Internet but cannot communicate with each other.
  • It prevents the forwarding of Layer 2 traffic between wireless users in the same Network.
  • This prevents any Rogue Guest User to take advantage of the Open Network.

Note: This knob is enabled by default in Guest Network. It is not possible to enable it for the Employee Network.
