Step 2 Create a Network for Guests

Go to Advanced > Guest Network. Locate the Wireless section. Create a 2.4GHz or 5GHz guest network according to your needs.

  • Enable 2.4GHz or 5GHz guest network. Or enable both, depending on your needs.
  • Set an easy-to-identify SSID. Don‘t select Hide SSID unless you want your guests and other people to manually input this SSID for Wi-Fi access.
  • Set Security to WPA/WPA2 Personal, keep the default Version and Encryption values, and set an easy-to-remember password.

Step 3 Customize Guest Network Options.

Go to Advanced > Guest Network. Assign network authorities and bandwidth according to your needs.

• Allow guests to see each other

Select this check box to allow the clients in your guest network to access each other.

• Allow guests to access my local network (VR200v doesn't have this feature)

Select this check box to allow the clients in your guest network to access your local network, not just Internet access.

• Allow guests to access my USB storage sharing

Select this check box to allow the clients in your guest network to access your router’s USB storage sharing.

• Enable guest network bandwidth control

Select this check box to assign the upstream and downstream bandwidth of the guest network. This option is available only when Bandwidth Control is enabled on the Advanced > Bandwidth Control page.
