    Hello,

    I have Guest Network enabled on my RT-AC68U router, I noticed the ip address assigned to the device connected on guest network are in the same ip section as other devices. I did not find a way to setup different ip address for guest. for example I have all my intranet devices on 192.168.100.xxx, and I want to assign 192.168.200.xxx to guest device.

    How can I achieve this? thanks

    Another tack might be, "Why?" IF all you want to do is isolate "guests" from your privates simply set up your "guest" SSID and disable intranet access.

    Not sure how it interacts with the vanilla guest settings tbh, not part of Yazfi I’ve played with.

    Ok, the comment says the guest network must be configured in GUI before using the script, so the answer is clear
