Why is Guest WiFi Important?
There are so many advantages of WiFi and these days; almost every family will use WiFi for household purposes. To keep freeloaders out, we usually add a password to the WiFi network. But what will you do when you have visitors, especially when they ask for your permission to access your WiFi network? Will you kindly share your password with them?
If the answer is yes, I guess the visitor must be a trustworthy one to you. But what if you don’t know the person or you don’t want to provide him the password because that is the same password you use for your money cards or social media accounts? A guest WiFi network could drag you out of this awkwardness!
You don’t have to give away your password if you have two WiFi networks – one for yourself, and another for the guests. That means you can set two different passwords for them then give the guests the password of the quest WiFi, showing your hospitality while keeping your key password under strict security.
But wait! How can you do that without spending extra bucks on new routers?
How to Set up WiFi Network for Your Guests?
Maybe you have read another post of ours, showing you how to extend WiFi range (boost WiFi signal) – this is exactly the same way you should use to set up a guest WiFi network. It basically includes 2 steps:
1. Create a WiFi network protected with the password you don’t want to share (If you don’t have a WiFi router, check this tutorial to create a WiFi hotspot from any network connection)
