I added an SSID to the network. Dont want those devices to communicate with anything else on the network, how can i do this. I am using Balance 30 and Ap One mini controlled by the router.
Simplest way to make devices connected to an SSID unable to reach devices connected to the network or other SSIDs
It sounds like you may want to create a VLAN and disable Inter-VLAN routing - this will prevent cross network communication. To keep devices on a wireless network from talking with each other you’ll need Layer 2 isolation. Or this can be done with an internal firewall rule. And finally, have that VLAN associated with a SSID.

As a note, switches can end up poking a hole in the network isolation if they are in the same network segment.
Thx. I created a VLAN, my current LAN (untagged) has an IP of 192.168.5.1. Creating a vlan forces me to specify an IP. so I do. 192.168.8.1. I then enable DHCP and check assign dns server automatically.
HOWEVER, when I try to connect, unable to get an IP.
What did I do wrong?
It looks like your VLAN should be handing out IP addresses just fine. Would you mind sending a picture of you SSID settings?
