Not really. They do not forward everything, but they do forward all
broadcast. it is kind of a hubbed switch. The WiFi side is a hub and
all communication is shared, but the bridge between the WiFi and wired
is switched. And if you choose "user mode isolation" a lot of the local
side hub goes away, but the contention does not.
WiFi is an ugly design, but it is popular. :)
