Would I be able to get a Philips Hue system on a guest network somehow? This answer leads me to believe I won't be able to connect it with ethernet, but is there a way to connect it wirelessly?

My network setup is pretty straightforward:

  • Cable modem
  • Apple AirPort Extreme, creating a main and guest network
    • Main network
      • Apple AirPort Express to extend network
    • Guest network
      • Philips Hue?

As a sort of workaround, you could use a wireless-to-Ethernet bridge to let your Hue access the guest WiFi network. The AirPort Express can do this, but not while still acting as an extender.
