AP Isolation = isolate broadcast domain?

    Well, there it is. Assuming that several wireless clients are connected on the same subnet, no VLANs, IPs assigned by DHCP and everyone is playing nice (no one is manually assigning an IP, trying to hack the WAP, do a DoS, etc.) does the "AP Isolation" function also isolate the broadcast domains? Or does the broadcast domain ignore the AP Isolation setting?

    I would think it would, since the point of AP Isolation would be to ... isolate the hosts connected to each other. But, I didn't want to take it for granted.

    I've also read on here that the AP Isolation can be kind of hit or miss depending on a few things.

    Fot the most part, it's safer to assume that AP isolation doesn't work

    Hmm...is that a Tomato-specific thing or DD-WRT as well? That would bear out some of my testing results (need better monitoring equipment at the site than I currently have to verify).
