how do I create a second guest wifi network?

Hi there. I'm trying to create a second network for guests on our wifi router. Is this possible?  If so, how?

 

thanks.

Not with an Xfinity gateway. Guests would use the hotspot

You will need to use a third party router, connect it via Ethernet to the gateway, configure it as a Wireless Access Point only, and enable AP Isolation so it doesn't allow users to access your LAN, only the internet.  (Not all third party routers will support this, however).
