Re: How to setup a guest network

Why do you have to make this so complicated. Simple question; 

How do I set up a Guest network on my Xfinity home wifi?

My home wifi is a standard home wifi supplied by Xfinity. I have not asked 30 other questions. Just answer this one.

Connect to Xfinity WiFi Home Hotspot

Many Xfinity Gateways broadcast a WiFi hotspot that can be accessed by guests who are Xfinity Internet customers.

To connect to the Xfinity WiFi hotspot network, your guests can simply select the WiFi network labeled xfinitywifi or XFINITY on their devices.

Robert,

 

I don't think you understand what a Guest network is. To answer the question, most if not all of Xfinity's hardware does not support guest networks. Buy your own router.

Thunder154, that's correct. We don't offer private guest network options for residential customers but we do have something like that for our Comcast Business class customers.
