I need the guest network to be 2.4 only.   why does the orbi UI suck sooooo  bad.   Netgear did a read crap job with this.

Re: 2.4 guest network only

I struggle to understand why it makes a difference if the Guest network supports only 2.4G or both 2.4G and 5G.  If guests connect, they use up the same internet capacity no matter which band they are on.  5G has higher bandwidth compared to 2.4G, so they make less of an impact on 5G than they do on 2.4G.  With so many devices being restricted to 2.4G, I would think the fewer guests on it, the better.


Well, "to each his own."  You need a different product.
