Assign Guest Network to Satellite LAN ports

Hi there,

I am wondering if it is possible to configure the LAN ports on the satellites to connect to Guest Network?

I am hooking up a printer on that port, I would like it to be accessible from the guest network.

Router is RBR20, Satellites are RBS20. 

 

Thanks

UP

A printer available only to the Guest network?  Interesting.  How about an inexpensive WiFi Extender, such as a TP-Link N300, available on Amazon for $20.

It has one ethernet port that can be used to connect a printer that lacks WiFi. Pair it to the Guest 2.4G network.

I love my Orbi.

Assigning guest network to the ethernet ports on the router or the satellites is not possible, AFAIK.

Pair a range extender to the Orbi guest network and use the range extender's ethernet port ... Brilliant!!
