Can I isolate users from one another by using multiple SSIDs?

The TEW-692GR Dual-Band Wireless N450 Router has 4 available SSIDs (Wifi Network Name) for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency spectrums giving you a total of 8 available SSIDs.  The common belief is that each wireless network (SSID) is isolated from one another making clients on separate SSIDs invisible to one another; unfortunately this is untrue.  Multiple wireless network names (SSIDs) are provided so users can connect legacy hardware that doesn’t support the newer WPA2 wireless encryption standard.  The 802.11n standard requires the use of WPA2 or better for full wireless n performance and any lower encryption standard used will drop the speed to 802.11g (54Mbps) speeds.
