NOTE:  By default, the guest Wi-Fi name is VelopSetupxxx-guest with the default password of BeMyGuest and guest IP address range of 192.168.3.x.  It is highly recommended that you do NOT leave the Guest network to its default settings and customize it by changing the Guest Wi-Fi name and password before sharing it with your Guest clients.
