Trying to add a GUEST connection to ORBI

I need to add a GUEST wifi connection to my Orbi system.  How do I do this and  keep my existing log-in for family in the home?

Re: Trying to add a GUEST connection to ORBI

What model Orbi system do you have? 

 

Have you enabled Guest Network on the RBRs web page and set a Custom SSID name to easily identify it on wifi devices?

We have the RBR50 Router with 3 mesh systems.  I'm sure I have not set up a guest network...not sure how to do this.

I cannot go to the GUEST login and find or add the network.

when I try to reset it, it says it is failed.

To confirm: this web page was opened on the Orbi web interface (http://orbilogin.net )

(The Guest network "name" is on the right side of the web page.)

After clicking Apply at the top of the page and waiting for the router to reboot (2-3 minutes)

Then a device supporting WiFi does not detect any WiFi with the name given to the Guest network?

What web browser are you using to access the RBRs web page? Try MS Edge, Firefox or Opera. 

Be sure to clear out all web browser caches as well.
