I have a Canon printer.  Previously had an ARRIS modem/router and not have the TP-LInk router.  ON the Arris I had to create a Guest network, which seemed to be always live, then use the Canon MAC address to limit that network to just the Canon.  This really worked nice or otherwise I always had to power down the printer and on again to get it to be active so I could print from Apple iphone or MacBook using regular 2G/5G networks that those Apple devices were on.   No, Airprint simply didn't work with the printer, even though that was supposed to be a feature of this printer.  NOBODY at Canon could assist with this issue.  I figured it out myself.  So, does this TP-LINK route have that ability to have an open SSID, but use MAC address to lock out anyone but my printer?

The guest network is able to be configured with or without a password. If you try to utilize the MAC filtering it will apply to the main network and not the guest network.
