After running the Smart Setup, the Guest Access feature is automatically turned ON. A Guest Wi-Fi is created automatically on the router's 2.4 GHz band. The latest dual-band and tri-band routers also support Guest Wi-Fi for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Be sure to remember this if you're connecting other networking devices, such as an extender. It should be configured to use the main network, not the Guest Wi-Fi. However, if you wish to extend the Guest Wi-Fi, keep in mind that any client connected to the extender will only have access to the internet, not the network.
