Yeah, I also did that way to change the static ip to what guest access ip should be. The test result was also as same as yours. However, this way only works on firmare version 126.96.36.199316 and 188.8.131.52933.(I guess you haven't updatd to the latest version?) After I updated to the latest version 184.108.40.206309, the guest network can't even be connected and it shows there's no internet on it which means I am not even able to change the static ip address. Well, even we are able to change static ip, that's still not how the guest access works isn't it? Like every friend comes to your house and connect to your velop guest network, you need them chang ip first like what we did on the test, that would be super inconvenient.
Anway, the linksys support just post something new on that page, check it out and he said he would ask some advice from engineer. I guess that's a good sign to the road of success?
New Update: Also, speaking of the parent IP was "unknown", it happens to me too. I think the BH_report page is still not perfect to show every detail of the velop yet, this kind of weird issue might be fixed as time goes by. Compare to the "unknown" ip thing, I was more curious about the speed on the bh_report, every time I reboot the velop, the speed of each node shows the different number, the maximun speed is 1024. I had asked this question to the Level 1 and Level 2 Linksys support, there's no answer I am satisfied with which is really sad。

Yeah, some velop users said their speed are all 1024 and others are like me who got different speed every time. Just wanna know the meaning of the speed here, but I would say that's definitely not the speed of the bandwidth which the Internet Service Provider gave, since my maximum internet speed is about 111 Mbps and 1024 is so much more than 111(I got some 1024 on some nodes too). Someone said that's the time that we run the BH_report, well I think that does make sense but not sure if it's true. Compare to the guest network issue, this question can be postponed by linksys to solve. Looking forward to the latest news from Linksys support here with you, hope they will bring some even better information later.

Nvm, still need more information from the engineer, several people like you had done the same way like what the engineer said from the link before and I know all the results were unsuccessful. Sorry, was too exicted lol
