By default, WiFi clients that are connected to the 2.4 GHz WiFi band of the guest WiFi
network cannot access WiFi devices or Ethernet devices that are connected to the main
WiFi network. To allow access to the main WiFi network, select the Allow guests to
see each other and access my local network check box.

The SSID is the 2.4 GHz WiFi band name. If you did not change the SSID, the default
SSID displays, which is NETGEAR_Guest1.
To change the SSID in the 2.4 GHz WiFi band for the guest WiFi network, enter a
32-character (maximum), case-sensitive name in this field.

Security Options
If you want to change the WiFi security, select one of the following WiFi security options for the 2.4 GHz
band of the guest WiFi network:
None. An open WiFi network that does not provide any security. Any WiFi device can join the 2.4 GHz
band of the guest WiFi network. This is the default setting for the guest WiFi network.
WEP. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security is a legacy authentication and data encryption mode
that is superseded by WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. The WEP option displays only if you configure the
WiFi mode for the main WiFi network as Up to 54 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band (see View or Change the
Basic WiFi Settings on page 73). For information about configuring WEP, see Configure WEP Legacy
WiFi Security on page 80.
To use WPA security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join the 2 .4
GHz band of the guest WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA2-PSK [AES]. WPA2 provides a secure and fast connection but some older WiFi devices do not
detect WPA2 and support only WPA. Select WPA2-PSK [AES] security to allow 802.11n devices to
connect to the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network at the fastest speed. If your network includes
older devices that do not support WPA2, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security.
To use WPA2 security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters.To join the 2.4 GHz
band of the guest WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. This type of security enables WiFi devices that support either
WPA or WPA2 to join the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network. However, WPA-PSK [TKIP] is less
secure than WPA2-PSK [AES] and limits the speed of WiFi devices to 54 Mbps.
To use WPA + WPA2 security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters. To join
the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
The passphrase that provides users access to the guest WiFi network in the 2.4 GHZ
band. The passphrase is also referred to as the password or key.

By default, the guest WiFi network is disabled. To enable the guest WiFi network for the
5 GHz WiFi band, select the Enable Guest Network check box.

Network
By default, the modem router broadcasts its SSID of the 5 GHz WiFi band so that WiFi
stations can detect the WiFi name (SSID) in their scanned network lists. To turn off the
SSID broadcast for the 5 GHz WiFi band for the guest WiFi network, clear the Enable
SSID Broadcast check box.
