Step 3: 
To enable the Wi-Fi access for guests, toggle the Enable Guest Access button to the right.  The Guest network uses the Wi-Fi name with _guest.  You can also create a new name of your choice for your Guest network.

Step 4: 
Create a Password to share with your Guest clients.  A random Guest Wi-Fi password is already configured for you but it is highly recommended to customize your Guest password for added security.
 
NOTE:  The Guest network uses the same encryption type as the main network.
 
Step 5: 
Select Save.
 
NOTE:  Your Guest clients will be on the same IP network as your main network.  This way, your Guest clients can join your main network, ( i.e., you can invite guest clients to game with you, and you don’t need to provide your guest with your personal wireless password of the main network).
 
You have now set up the Guest Access for the Linksys WRT32X.
