- Connecting the iPad® to the Guest network
The Guest Access feature allows you to create a separate network for your guests without allowing them to access your main network and the computers connected to it.
Before connecting, make sure you have the following:
- Guest Wi-Fi name
- Guest Wi-Fi key or password
To learn how to check the Guest Wi-Fi password using the Linksys Connect software, click here.
NOTE: The Guest Access feature is only available to all Linksys Wi-Fi Routers, Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, and the Linksys X-series Gateways.
On your Home Screen, tap Settings.
NOTE: If the Wi-Fi feature is OFF, toggle the Wi-Fi switch to activate it.
On the right navigation panel, tap on the Guest network that you want to connect to.
NOTE: The Wi-Fi name of the Guest network will have a “–guest” suffix in addition to the Wi-Fi name of the main network. The Guest network will appear as an unsecured network in the list of available Wi-Fi. However, once you connect to your Guest network a new window will appear requiring you to enter your Guest password before you can access the internet.
Enter your Password and then tap LOGIN.
Press the Home button to exit the Settings screen.
NOTE: Once connected to the network, you should see a solid Airport icon on the upper-left corner of your iPad®. To learn how to check your router’s wireless settings using an iPad, click here.
You should now have successfully connected to your Guest network.
