Multiple segregated SSIDs (not just guest) for devices
It would be nice if we could create multiple segregated (if so chosen) SSIDs. Maybe something like this -
HomeMain - Parents phones, PCs, TiVo.
HomeKids - SSID for the kids tablets, phones, XBOX etc..
HomeIoT - SSID for your thermostat, Smart TV, light bulbs, etc.
HomeGuest - SSID for friends, enable and disable as I am currently able to in the app.
No SSID inter-access unless granted by the admin, for instance, HomeMain can access a PC on HomeKids for remote desktop, but HomeKids cannot do the same.
Set DHCP range per SSID, specifically DNS servers so a restive openDNS for HomeKids but pi-hole for HomeMain and HomeGuest, Google DNS for HomeIoT.....
You can tag each SSID.
Allow assigning SSID to (ethernet connected only) mesh-device, ie - HomeKids isn't broadcasting from the device in the parents bedroom.
Agreed, this would be super helpful especially with insecure IoT devices and kids. I think a key is that they are on separate VLANs so that the different networks can't 'talk' to eachother.
Even better if this could be done where in "Bridge Mode" it would dump each SSID into a separate VLAN (for those of us with a separate Firewall/Router).
I just stumbled across this thread because I am looking to setup (mesh) wifi at my new home in a way that is described here:
- ssid/lan for main users
- ssid/lan for kids
- ssid/lan for iot/"smart" stuff
- ssid for guest internet access
Is this (now) something that is possible with Amplifi?
@arno-jansen You can have a main network (2.4GHz & 5 GHz), guest network (2.4 GHz & 5Ghz), and a separate network that broadcasts a 2.4GHz and a 5GHz channel, but that is the limit for the amount of networks that AmpliFi can broadcast.
@ubnt-brett Thanks for the reply! And does it allow rules to regulate access from one ssid (vlan?) to another? For example: no route from an IOT ssid to the main ssid, but from the main to IOT is ok (or maybe just specific devices/mac addresses)?

@ubnt-brett I think the guest network doesn’t allow devices on the guest network to talk to each other. It’d be great if the guest network could host a printer or other devices guests might look to connect to locally.
