Router: Nighthawk X4 R7500
Firewalla is in DHCP mode
Router: Netgear WNDR3700 reconfigured as WAP
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r30880 std (11/14/16)
Connected via ethernet (Not WAN port) no DHCP
So prior to installing Firewalla, I get some basic security through isolation by having most of my IoT products run on a Guest Network. Since installing Firewalla I've had issues with these devices being able to access the internet (addresses by turning monitoring off). On the WAP I have the addition issue of devices connecting to the Guest Network not seeing the Internet at all regardless of whether monitoring is tuned off or not.
I'm going to play with turning Monitoring off for the WAP. Wanted to see what your thoughts were there. Do you monitor devices that are part of the network infrastructure itself?
Second, I wanted to ask the question as to what is the better approach. It is better to have some of these devices in isololation on seperate network, or is it better to have them monitored on the open network? There may be a feature request here to have "Internet Access Only" as a device option within Firewalla where you provide the isolation.
I look forward to your response, thanks!
