Re: CRS106-1C-5S PoE-IN working ?

Read the specs. Both devices use different POE schemes.

CRS106 PoE In = passive POE 11-30V
CRS310: PoE in = 802.3 af/at 18-57 V

What works for one, may not work for the other depending on the power source you give them.
E.g. typically 802.3 POE is 48V or about. CRS106 does not accept that voltage.

Re: secure guest network

Best option for your requirements:
capsman and vlan.
You don't need a separate controller, one of the caps can do it easily.
Any other option will require you to make workaround after workaround on 3 different devices and maybe still have some loopholes in it.

No need to sugarcoat it any further.
