Guest network on access point


Occasional Visitor
Are the guest networks meant to be used while running an Asus router as access point? Since they're present I just assumed they were, but when using them the dl speeds only hover at around 2-3mbps, upload speeds are fine, it's the same on both bands and all guest networks. Tried rebooting both the Asus access point and gateway (rpi 4 in this case) but dl speeds were still at 2-3 mbps, maybe there's additional settings needed on the Asus or gateway?

There's no reason why the guest networks can't be used in AP mode or why they would be slower.

Bear in mind that Asus have changed the way guest network "slot" #1 works which has been causing a few issues. So if you're experiencing problems it's best to avoid using those and stick to slots #2 and #3.

Also remember that in AP mode the guest networks don't provide any LAN isolation so they're of limited use.
