Enable Guest
Network
By default, the guest WiFi network is disabled. To enable the guest WiFi network for
the 2.4 GHz band, select the Enable Guest Network check box.
Enable SSID
Broadcast
By default, the modem router broadcasts its SSID of the 2.4 GHz band so that WiFi
stations can detect the WiFi name (SSID) in their scanned network lists. To turn off the
SSID broadcast for the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network, clear the Enable SSID
Broadcast check box.
Allow guest to
access My Local

By default, WiFi clients that are connected to the 2.4 GHz 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 guest
to access My Local Network check box.
Enable Wireless
Isolation
By default, WiFi clients that are connected to the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi
network can access other WiFi devices on the guest WiFi network. To prevent WiFi
clients that are connected to the 2.4 GHz band of the guest WiFi network from
accessing other WiFi devices on the guest WiFi network, select the Enable Wireless
Isolation check box.
Guest Wireless
Network Name
(SSID)
The SSID is the 2.4 GHz WiFi band name. The default SSID displays, which is
NETGEAR_Guest1, NETGEAR_Guest2, or NETGEAR_Guest3.
If you want to change the SSID in the 2.4 GHz 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that is superseded by WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK.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 Manage the Basic
WiFi Settings and WiFi Security of the Main Network on page 56.). For information about configuring
WEP, see Configure WEP Legacy WiFi Security on page 62.
WPA-PSK [TKIP]. WPA provides a secure connection but is superseded by WPA2. The WPA-PSK
[TKIP] 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 Manage the Basic WiFi Settings and WiFi Security of the Main Network on
page 56.).
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.
