    computer knocks out entire network at startup

    Do you have STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) enabled? Unmanaged switches are evil. I have had storms from time to time even with STP enabled until I changed all unmanaged switches to managed ones. Enable storm protection in switches' settings.

    ASUS RT-AC86U Weird Logs [MERLIN 386.2_4]

    IMHO there's no need to hide real ssid because the wireless network and the guest network could have different passwords. There is no access to the router's UI or to the LAN from within the guest network, so every client is basically on its own having access just to the Internet.
