I have noticed this for a while and I was hoping an update will fix it, but nothing yet, so I thought I could post it here.

I have a Virtual WiFi configured for IoT devices, separated from the one used by computers. I set it up with AP isolation and it works. Except that after every power outage or reboot I have to configure it again. I basically disable AP isolation, Apply, enable AP isolation again, Apply. Only after this dance the IoT devices are able to connect again. This looks like some bug to me, unless I'm not configuring it correctly somehow. The router is Netgear R7000 (DD-WRT v3.0-r47618 std (11/05/21))

@m_viorel

Welcome to the forums.

I suspect you found the VAP bug, well documented issue with known workarounds.

See https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=327063

I will also move your thread to the Broadcom subforum, since this topic is better suited there.

Next time please take care of searching and reading though the build threads, stickies as they contain all the information you should need to get to most common issues.

Have a nice day and take care.

I'd venture to guess that the guest network is meant to separate the clients from the main network (net isolation) instead of from each other (ap isolation), but what do I know. There may be an issue that requires the same configuration for both the main ap and the virtual ap for it to play nice. Without knowing exactly what the desired outcome is, I can only make semi-educated guesses here.

Thank you kindly!
I did search for a while before bothering you, but I suspect I didn't search for the right keywords. Apologies!
The link does seem to explain my problem, so I'm going to implement the workaround.
As for details, I do use both net isolation from the main net, plus also AP isolation between devices on the virtual net.
Much appreciated!
