Limit Peer to Peer communication for Wireless Guest users

Answered Question

We have a WLAN configured on our WLC 5508 ( for guest wireless users using simple PSK for authentication.  How can I block wireless guest devices from being able to see other devices on the same wireless network.   As an example if I run a ping sweep while connected to this network I get responses from other devices.  Basically I want to ensure that no devices are able to communicate on any level to other devices on that network but being able to access the default gateway for Internet access.

What's the best way to accomplish this?

Besides what Leo mentioned, you can do it from CLI:

config wlan peer-blocking drop <wlan ID>

To know your WLAN ID, use the command "show wlan summary".
