Telstra Wifi Booster gen 2 guest network?

Hi all, I have recently setup 3 of these boosters via ethernet backhaul and they are working well, I have a Netgear gen 2 Telstra modem and a number of gigabit switches around the home to accommodate all the devices.


my question is how can I get my guest network wifi working through the boosters along with the main wifi network. I have both networks working through the modem on both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz? 

it would be nice to keep the main network separate purely for security reasons as my kids have friends over regularly for play dates or sleepovers, I have no problem with them all connecting to my guest network. I’m a bit of a novice with this subject so any suggestions would be much appreciated.

The boosters can't relay the guest network, only the main one. 

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it
