guest wireless network

A wireless router (or Wi-Fi router) feature that is designed to allow users to easily grant "visitor" access to your wireless Internet connection. Your visitors will get their own SSID to connect to, and you can isolate it from your main network to make sure that outsiders don’t have access to your local network resources, such as PCs and printers.

See Common Router IP and Settings.
