Move client host from guest network to regular network

I have a device that, when I set it up, I selected the guest network to connect to. Now I want to place it on the regular network. I found the device's setup process a bit cumbersome so don't want to go through it again if I can make the change using the router's web page.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

RT-AC86U with Merlin 386.4.

Which SSID the client connects to is down to the client not the router. The only way around that would be to change the name your primary SSID to that of the guest network (after renaming the guest network to something else) and reconfigure every WiFi device connected to it.

Well, that doesn't look like it would simplify things! I guess I'll break out the instructions for the device!

OK, it was much simpler to re-install than I remembered. Took about 3 minutes.

RESLOVED!

Thanks.
