    Hi

    Im going to be setting up a guest network on my AC86U, although It will not be used that often I would prefer to keep it enabled 24/7 as I don't want to have to keep enabling as and when.

    Also keep it to 2.4ghz band only and restrict access to my local network.

    I have something I'm unsure of, should the guest 2.4ghz band use the same channel as my own 2.4ghz band or should it be different ?

    Any other settings advice much appreciated.

    Thanks

    It cannot have another channel as your main SSID for that band. Where would you like change this setting?
    If you have 2 routers they should use different channels of course.
