Encountering problem connecting to the Guest Wi-Fi on my wired Velop system’s Child node

Scenario:  I have a wired Velop system where the Parent node is wired to a managed switch, and the Child node wired to the Parent node.  Why can’t I connect to the Child node’s Guest Wi-Fi?

When the Velop system is set up with a managed switch as pictured below, your devices will not be able to connect to the Child node’s Guest Wi-Fi unless the managed switch is configured to forward and allow VLAN 3 and VLAN 4 traffic.  These two VLANs are needed for Velop’s Guest Access setup to function.  No configuration is needed for unmanaged switches.
