AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router Model D6400
Security Options - Profile
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that is superseded by WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK.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 93). For information about configuring
WEP, see Configure WEP Legacy WiFi Security for the Guest WiFi Network on page 108.
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 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.
Wireless Network (5GHz a/n/ac) - Profile
Enable Guest
Network
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.
Enable SSID
Broadcast
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.
Allow guests to
see each other
and access my
local network
By default, WiFi clients that are connected to the 5 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.
Guest Wireless
Network Name
(SSID)
The SSID is the 5 GHz WiFi band name. If you did not change the SSID, the default
SSID displays, which is NETGEAR-5G-Guest. If you want to change the SSID in the
5 GHz WiFi band for the guest WiFi network, enter a 32-character (maximum),
case-sensitive name in this field.
