    Hi, whats the difference between the following to security features in routers ? And do they recommended to keep on for home security?

    1) Clients Isolation
    2) SSID Isolation

    Client isolation prevents two computers logged on the the same SSID from seeing each other.

    SSID isolation prevents computers on different SSIDs (but on the same network) from seeing each other.

    If there is no need to share files within the network among these users, it would not be a bad idea to enable both.
