I have a Watchguard XTM 26W with the latest firmware.
I need to setup a guest network on interface 3. Unfortunately, they have changed the process and I can't figure out how to configure it.
Is there an easy explanation on how to set the primary and secondary interface for a network of a different subnet?
Main trusted network is 10.10.3.X
Guest will be 10.10.5.X

I'm not exactly sure what your question is. I haven't seen any significant changes to the method of setting up a network since version 10 or so of the software. You would set up an optional network and configure it with the IP addressing information you want to use, including DHCP range, VLAN settings, DNS settings, etc.  Then physically you would connect that port (port 2 on the router, assuming your ports are numbered 0 for the WAN, 1 for the Trusted network and 2 for the Optional network) to your physical network VLAN or separate switch that you've configured internally to handle that network.

Maybe if you have some specific questions, you could post them here to be answered more directly.
