This function allows you to provide Wi-Fi access for guests without disclosing your main network. When you have guests in your house, apartment, or workplace, you can create a guest network for them. In addition, you can assign network authorities and bandwidth for guests to ensure network security, privacy, and fluency.

Note: Archer VR2600 is used for demonstration in this article.

Step 1: Please login the web management page of the modem. Please refer to How to log into the web-based interface of the AC VDSL/ADSL Modem Router?

  3. Set Security to WPA/WPA2 Personal, keep the default Version and Encryption values, and set an easy-to-remember password.
  4. Click Save. Now your guests can access your guest network using the SSID and password you set.
