    In this case, very likely the Firewalla can't see the DHCP requests from the guest network inside the box.   In theory, TP-link (and a few other routers) should completely isolate the guest network, even if the main router services like DHCP is off, that network's DHCP should be up ...

    Hi, I have a D-link router. I have a guest network enabled, as well as a repeater to extend my coverage.

    Will DHCP mode allow me to monitor devices on the guest network? *(currently my guest network is not visible to the Firewalla)

    Guest networks that comes with your router can not be seen by any device outside;

    I want to confirm, the FireWalla will not be able to view devices on the guest network, even though they would get their DHCP served from the Firewalla.

    If firewalla is issuing the IP addresses, then firewalla should be able to see these devices.  Can you give it a try?
