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.
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?
