Be sure you have not set the schedule where it is outside the time for the guest network. Also be sure to page to the bottom of the screen and click save. Try rebooting the router as some changes require a reboot. Also try encryption auto. Be sure the SSID (network name) is not used somewhere else. And try deleting (forget) the network name on your PC and restart it.

I looked at your Manual (https://www.tp-link.com/us/user-guides/TL-WR840N_V6.2/chapter-4-configure-the-router-in-standard-wireless-router-mode#ug-sub-title-7) and it shows the Encryption as 'Auto'. See if that would work if changed?

 

Although this FAQ isn't for your router, it to says use the Default, https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1561/
