CAUTION: Orbi's Wifi Guest Network does not really isolate guests from main network

As good as Netgear Orbi may be and the fact it retains its #1 spot does not excuse them from the privacy that guest network should have, This is over a one year old problem so it looks like it will never be fixed. I know 1st hand that customers have spoken to Netgear support on the phone then the issue goes silent with no fix. I tested Orbi just over a year ago and I was blown away with the coverage and performance but advertising and supporting a guest network that is not isolated from the main network is unexceptionable, In fact even in my own testing I contacted Netgear over a year ago and asked them why did the guest network get an IP in the same range as the main network and that went unanswered. buyer beware.

Odd. I have guest isolation enabled and my guest WiFi network isn’t able to access the LAN.
