Router Guest wifi capable USE IT ;)

Post by wd » January 21st, 2016, 9:03 pm

after seeing wifi cameras get whacked and gaining access to the main wifi network
guest wifi seems to take on a new meaning for me
while it was great for guests that just need internet and should not see your principal devices I think its time to use it more like an extra layer
your apple tv, your wifi camears, your TV's with wifi your amazon echo ...all the IOT (Internet of Things)
devices you have that only need to get to the internet but no need to be on your main network move them to the Guest Wifi
keep these things away from you main wifi
just a thought ;)
I just moved my TV's wifi and other things on guest
so Guest not just for visitors anymore :)
and yes Guest wifi needs a strong password to
