Setting up Guest Access in your iPad® with Connect Express

Connect Express gives you the flexibility of being able to set up the Guest Access feature on your Linksys wireless-N router using your iPad®.

Guest Access is a feature on your router that will allow guests to connect to the Internet without accessing your main network, thus keeping your computers and personal files safe.  You can also view your Linksys router's Guest Access settings through Connect Express.

This article will guide you in setting up wireless Guest Access using your iPad®.  To learn how, follow the steps below:
