Re: modify ssid's for guest network

Given that you understand that modifying Orbi parameters using telnet (a) is not supported by Netgear, and (b) may have all sorts of unintended consequences, here is what I found when I did a telnet to my Orbi and typed "nvram show".




 I had entered "MyGuest" as the name of my Orbi guest network.  (I personally use Putty and have set it up to log the entire session to a text file, which I then dumped into a text editor and searched for "ssid".)  There are a bunch of parameters with "ssid" in them.  Have no idea what they all do.


p.s.  I would have my paperclip at hand in case the Orbi needs to be factory reset.
