I have a question about my Super User post: How to isolate a Windows 7 Hosted Network from a LAN (to use it as a guest Wi-Fi)?

It was initially put on hold as too broad, which I understand. I rewrote it, but 3 of 4 voted to leave it closed and now I'm not sure what's wrong with it. I made a third revision, but the question is already closed now.

Please help me understand what's wrong with my question and what could I do to improve it and finally get some guidance on my task.

  • You might edit that question and explain what you have tried with detail such as configuring the hosted networks on separate subnets but then confirming for some reason when connected to the WLAN AP on the hosted network e.g. 10.1.1.X you could still ping or access resources on the 10.1.101.X subnet. So add "what you have tried" and maybe some other things you are still going to try next (e.g. disable OS IP forwarding, Windows Firewall rules, change hosted network virtual NIC as public/private, etc.). – Pimp Juice IT Dec 21 '18 at 0:19
  • Instead of saying, "Is it possible to ~", say "I have tried configuring this like this, and also this like this, and a few other things, and I cannot get this to work, is this even possible?" If you have a source you read that said something is possible, also state that according to "X" but according to my testing and trouble, I'm having the hardest time & wondering if someone here could that is familiar with this can help. Just some ideas of language to use rough idea wise, but show what you have tried and be detailed & make it not look sloppy, and then tag me back and I will vote to reopen. – Pimp Juice IT Dec 21 '18 at 0:23
  • If the community gets 5 votes, it can be re-open so once you fix it per some of that feedback, tag me back and I will review and tell you if I voted to re-open or if it needs more refining. – Pimp Juice IT Dec 21 '18 at 0:24
