HOW TO SETUP A GUEST SSID?

I have renters in my condo, and i want to give them wifi access, without exposing my network password or requiring i reconfigure 25 devices. How do i do that?

 

(I KNOW THEY COULD USE XFINITYWIFI if they are comcast customers, but I am not sure if they are)

If you’re using a Comcast gateway that’s not an option, they’d have to access the hotspot

You could configure a separate, third party router as a Wireless Access Point, set AP Isolation to On or use the Guest Account feature if any, and connect it via ethernet to your main router or gateway. Your renters can then use that Guest /AP device to connect.

Make sure your tenants don't have physical access to the device though, so they don't bypass your security.
