Crash is within Broadcom's code, nothing I can do about it.

I haven't seen anyone else run into the same issue, so I wonder if the problem wouldn't be related to your configuration.

I have both guest networks enabled on my RT-AX88U running in AP mode. No issues. I am using the second Guest Network config.

Don't know if it's related but I had an issue with the 2.4GHz guest network on my 86U running 386.1_2. It would randomly stop working multiple times a day i.e. would still broadcast but no client could connect to it till you manually restarted the 2.4 radio or rebooted.

I tried using Guest Networks 1-3, all of them had the same issue.

Ended up repurposing the main 2.4GHz network (i.e. non-Guest) as my IOT network and it's been working great since then.
