Please explain the three networks

At home I have an Orbi RBK50 system with both WiFi networks activated:

- The ”all access network” where each device can access all other device on the network.

- The “guest network” where each device can only access the Internet

 

So, for my business I decided to install the Orbi Pro to use the three networks availible according to the marketing information on the Netgear website:

- Admin, with access to critical infrastructure

- Employee, with no access to critical infrastructure

- Guest/Customer, with no access to critical infrastructure and configurable access

 

Well, to my surprise the “Employee” network is not really an employee network where connected device have no access to critical infrastructure, instead the employee network is really the same as a guest network where connected devices have no access to anything but the Internet....or have I missed something?

 

Who has employees that do not require access to a printer or a file server?

 

Am I missing something? Is there a way to configure the employee network so it can be used by employees?

 

...or did Netgear just screw me with their marketing and delivered the Orbi Pro with three networks:

1. “All access network”

2. “Guest  network”

3. “Guest  network, with landing page”

 

My guess is that Netgear messed up their engineering and marketing of the Orbi Pro....but I am still hoping for somebody to save my sanity...
