Enabling Guest Control in UniFi Controller Blocked Access to Local Network Services by Default

Properly configuring guest isolation in the UniFi Controller

For my guest wireless network, I like the idea of all of the network devices on the guest network to be isolated from one another. Since the guest network should be used for visitors and other untrusted devices, it makes sense to restrict communication between the devices to improve security. Even though captive portals are a pretty cool feature that can provide a “wow” factor for guests that log onto your guest network, I have read where the captive portal on UniFi wireless access points can reduce the throughput of the guest network.
