RBS50Y Keeps broadcasting NETGEAR-GUEST

I HAVE NO CLUE HOW TO FIX THIS.. I have tried disabling guest / reenabling / repairing the satelites / uncheck broadcast SSID. The RBS50Y keeps broadcasting a NETGEAR-GUEST ssid that you cant actually even use cause you get no internet connectivity. I notice that it keeps this SSID even when I change the guestnetwork name. It broadcast this with the network that I named my Guest Network. Any fix ? is there a way to disable this through telnet ?

I'm trying to downgrad the firmware to RBS50Y-V2.3.5.32. Apparently other people are having this issue & no one at Netgear is fixing it =(

It didn't work -- I tried telnet.. I will see if that works - 

root@RBS50Y:/# config get wlg1_ssid
NETGEAR-Guest
root@RBS50Y:/# config get wla_ssid
Antonacci418
root@RBS50Y:/# config get wla1_ssid
NETGEAR-Guest
root@RBS50Y:/#
root@RBS50Y:/# config get wla2_ssid
Antonacci-Guest
root@RBS50Y:/#
root@RBS50Y:/# config set endis_wla1_ssid=0
root@RBS50Y:/#
root@RBS50Y:/# config set endis_wlg1_ssid=0

Re: RBS50Y Keeps broadcasting NETGEAR-GUEST

So it seems like Netgear is pushing this upgrade automatically. Meaning when I downgraded to 2.3.5.32 it automatically updated back to the buggy firmware. It seems the only way to fix this till Netgear fixes it is through Telnet using commands - 

root@RBS50Y:/# config set endis_wla1_ssid=0
root@RBS50Y:/# config set endis_wlg1_ssid=0

Please make contact with NG support and let them know about this. NG will need to review this for your unit. 

Good luck.
