Saw another link whereby this can be achieved when router A is using the dd-wrt firmware

Is there ways to configure when router A is not using dd- wrt firmware and users can get connected to router B guest network?

What model routers do you have?
It needs the hardware and firmware to act as an access point. A lot of routers can act as an AP if the firmware supports it.

The dd-wrt firmware does enable that on some routers that do not have the AP option from the manufacturer firmware.

The dd-wrt website has a list of compatible routers.
