XR500 v2.3.2.40 Guest Network Broken


XR500 v2.3.2.40 Guest Network Broken

Well, this firmware has issues.  I had to downgrade back to the previous .32 one.


The Guest Network would not let my IoT devices through at all.  I have the Guest Network setup on 2.4 and 5Ghz channels, and let my Nest Cams and other devices connect.  They would not successfully connect and obtain an Internet connection.  I also tried on multiple other devices.  Did a full router hard reset and set up everything again, still no luck.


I downgraded back to .32 and BAM, zero issues.  Not sure if anyone else uses the guest network and has seen a similar issues.

Did you factory reset the router after applyting .40 then setup from scratch to see if the iot devices connected?
