IOT on Guest Wifi

Our TP-Link AC1750 provides services for a Guest Network.  It also allows me to prohibit guests from access to my local network however I see IP addresses with same octet being assigned to guest devices as in 192.168.0.xxx.  I would have thought the guest IPs would be on a different segment address such as 192.168.1.xxx or 10.0.0.xxx.  How is the isolation being done?  I wanted to isolate our IOT devices from our local area network but still allow them access to Internet.  Maybe best to finish installing the Ubiquity EdgeRouter X for this purpose?

Somew products I have used create a basic VLAN for the Guest network.  It would be  agood question to post on the TPLInk website and see.

The AC1750 already has a built in preconfigured "guest network".  My question is, how does this isolate guest users from the local area network when all the IP addresses are on the same subnet?

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

Apparently this summarizes things:  Wireless Isolation features are less fancy. Simply enable the isolation option and all clients connected to the Wi-Fi network will be blocked from communicating with other devices on the local network. Through a system of firewall rules, clients connected to the Wi-Fi will only be able to communicate with the Internet, not each other or any machines on the wired network.

I will continue exploring the idea of creating a separate subnet.  Thanks to those who responded.

Having a different subnet for guest network with additional firewall rules seems to be the best solution for me.
