I've heard the new 386_26044 firmware fixed the known issue of not being able to get the guest network to the satellite nodes of the XT8. However, I can't seem to get it to work on my units. Does anybody here know if that functionality was added? thanks, I use the guest network for IoT devices to keep traffic somewhat isolated.

Probably safe to ignore. :)

If you want to prove it one way or another on your network, do a full reset on the main and each node and see if it works then (do not use a saved backup config file afterward).

The new firmware says guest network should work on all nodes. I installed the firmware but no luck. Tried a hard reset, still no luck. Anybody else out there get it to work?

If you haven't already fixed this here is how I enabled the Guest on all Nodes.
Log in to the router in a browser.
Go to Guest Network.
Click on the network (It's not always obvious that you can click there)
There is a setting Sync to AiMesh Node and change to all.
It worked in getting my guest network on all nodes.
