guest access on comcast router.

How to set up guest access on comcast gateway router.

 

Connect your old router to comcast gateway with Ethernet cable to one of the 4 ports. Use the same numbered port on both routers.

Re: guest access on comcast router.

Daisy chaining two routing devices is not a good idea as it creates a double NAT condition on the home network. It would be better to have the gateway bridged.
