EA7500 AP Isolation but leaves ubuntu 14.04 home media server accessible

I have a home media server running on ubuntu box.

 

At the same time i do not want any devices to be able to talk to any of the peers out of security thus AP isolation.

 

but i want all devices to be able to talk to the ubuntu box.

 

How can i do this sorcery?

iptables firewall should be installed and enabled on the Linux box. Create iptables rules to control the traffic to the Linux.

AP isolation typically means isolate wireless clients from each other. Is that what you want?

exactly my intention.

 

with my wireless clients isolated from each other, i still want all of them to be able to access my ubuntu box.

The below EA7500 local wireless setting page isn't officially supported by Linksys but I think it doesn't have control over AP Isolation.

 

This example probably isn't correct for you Linksys SmartWifi router but you login locally using the router's admin password then manually change the last section of the URL to "advanced-wireless.html" and press enter.

 

Example:

http://<router ip>/ui/x.x.xx.xxxxx/dynamic/advanced-wireless.html
