Can I control which network my WPS directs a wireless device to?

I have 2 wifi network assigned coming from my wireless modem. When I have visitors that wants to temporarily connect to my wifi, I press my WPS button so they can easily access my wifi BUT, I dont want them to just randomly connect to any of the 2 network. How can I assign wps connected wireless device to a specific network only

Re: Can I control which network my WPS directs a wireless device to?

Can you be more specific as to what network setup you have?

 

If you refer to the 2.4 GHz and the 5GHz wireless bands, some routers DO allow you to select which band WPS connects to, but others confine you to the 2.4 GHz network only.

 

If you're referring to a separate network or subnet (such as an additional "Guest" network) aside from your main one, WPS lets you connect to your main network only.
