Hello,

I have NBG6515 on AP mode running just fine. WLAN works great, but WLAN guest not so great.
There seem to have firewall to outgoing traffic on guest WLAN. Could it be disabled or changed somehow? Now it blocks ICMP ping and TCP/993. Blocking IMAPS (TCP/993) is really strange and impracticable.
It blocks lot other ports, too. Like whatsapp videophones etc. Guest WLAN is used for mobile devices.

I took backup from configuration thinking maybe I could modify settings from there and import it back. But it's just some binary.

Is there something that could be done about this?

    What is the firmware version of your NBG6515?
    May I know how do you check and know that? Can you share your verification steps?

    Hi,

    firmware version in V1.00(AAXS.5)C0. It can be found via browser (http://your.ap.ip.address), on basic mode from status page or express mode front page (which is status page as well). On-line firmware upgrade does not show newer firmware available.

    Thanks for provide the firmware version.
    Can you share more detail about the problem of Guest WLAN?

    I'm using my android mobile phone to connect Guest WLAN of NBG6515 (AP mode), WhatsApp can send and receive message, but cannot ping any IP/Domain successfully.
