A setting called 'client isolation' on a router will prevent a computer that connects to a wifi network from accessing computers (and other devices) that are on the same network with wired connections. This is very useful if you plan on having visitors use a network set-up for the use of attorneys from your firm.
The client isolation setting will also prevent two devices connected to the network via wifi from connecting with one another.
Client isolation (also known as wireless isolation) differs from guest wifi networks which involve an entirely separate access point. Client isolation uses firewalls to restrict visitors to connecting to the internet.
