i am new with Zyxel and I am configuring an guest network. I don't have vlan support. I created an new SSID guest network in Nebule and set the slider for guest network to On, contact my client to this new SSID and did an ip scan. The most other clients in the netwerk I can't contact with, only with the gateway and the management page of the AP. For the gateway I understand, but why can I contact to the management page of the AP, is that normal behavior? And what can I do to disable this?
The accespoint I have is AC1200

    Did you setup any kind of setting for not allowing this?
    Does guest and "not guest" SSID share the same subnet?

    I didn't setup anything els than set the slider enable guest network and I have only one subnet for the guests and normal clients.
    It is an simple network without managed switches, use of vlan's isn't possible here.

    Therefore, unless the AP you're using can behave like a router, Guest SSID would work exactly as the non-Guest SSID.
    I suggest you to buy enough switches vLan-capable and create a network in your router/firewall...

    So what is the added value of the guest network? With other brands you have the option for guest network as well and then you can't reach anything on the local network, you can only connect to the Internet.
