I have an Orbi router with satellite (latest firmware) setup with the main network and a guest network. Both are working fine and I have setup the guest network to be isolated from the rest of the network. My question: I am not getting the guest network to be broadcast from the Orbi satellite, only the Orbi router. Is this a bug, setup issue, or is the guest netowrk only available from the base router?
I would have assumed that the satellite would replicate both networks but I am only getting it from the router. Please advise.

Re: Orbi router and satellite guest network
How have you determine that the Satellites aren't sending it? Did you use a wifi channel scanner?
I just did a test here at home, using a wifi scanner I can see the Guest network is being broadcast by 6 different BSSID:
1) Router 5G
2) Routher 2.4G
3) Sat1 5G
4) Sat1 2.4G
5) Sat2 5G
6) Sat2 2.4G
(I have 1 router and 2 Sats). I didn't do anything special, just enabled the guest, I'm running latest firmware. I would say double check there isn't an issue with your wifi scanner.
