B1300 will ever have a guest network?

I was pleased using AR750s having guest network which I used as a “VPN SSID”. If I want to connect to VPN I was simply connecting to guest ID. But it wasn’t covering my house so I switched to B1300 in mesh (2 routers).

But sadly I miss the guest networking part and if I connect router with VPN I will have VPN all the time and for every time and not when I want to switch to VPN like in AR750s.

Should I expect such feature ever coming in B1300?

The guest network has some compatibility issues in mesh mode, and we are trying to solve it.
This feature will not be added in a short time.

I have the guest network working on the B1300 using the testing firmware version 3.100

You go into the Mesh side menu and you should see a tab named “2.4G Guest WiFi”

That tab disappears after the mesh set up. My mesh set up is also screwed up after the latest upgrade as I still see SSID of slave unit.

My mesh is messed up after the 3.102 upgrade as well. On the “MESH” page, I don’t see anything listed anymore under “Mesh Clients” but they do still appear to be working.

I upgraded today and my PPPoE has stopped working. The reason of upgrade was to have guest network with VPN but that isn’t even there.

I am not liking their routers anymore, full of bugs now.

OK, confirming the issue :slight_smile:

2 Brand new B1300 running 3.102

Can’t see the mesh slave node in the Gl.iNet interface

But can see it in the Luci interface.

Mesh is however running as far as I can see :slight_smile:

Am only seeing the master node ssid however and not the slave one !

This is fixed for me in the newest testing firmware img they just dropped yesterday (3.103).
