Ahhh, maybe that was it. I ended up finding a setting on the AP that makes a wifi network a guest network. Turning it on prevents anything connected to it from talking to any private IP ranges.
thats the opposite of what you want isnt it? Guest networks talk to the internet, but nothing inside the network.

You want something to talk only to the internal network (or some subset of it), and NOT the internet.

Slowly getting the hang of this Mikrotik. Got a needed hairpin rule in place and got VPN setup. Obviously with the internet's help, otherwise I'd barely be able to log in. :lol:

Also, this change to 1080p for TV shows is crushing my storage. I think I had 12TB free about a month ago, today I have 4TB.

Sadly, I missed the price mistake on Amazon that had 16TB drives up for $200. Or the one a few weeks ago that had them on the WD site for like $2.

you have good external plex access still? That was one thing I never fully resolved on my mikrotik (and i think it was relating to hairpin NAT)

Yep. That's always worked just fine. The only thing that didn't was my requests site.
