Configuring the Guest Access feature through the Linksys app

The Guest Access feature of the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers allows guests to use your internet connection without granting access to your files and other devices connected to your main network. In short, your friends can visit different websites but will not be able to access printers or any shared files in your home computers.

The steps below will guide you on how to configure the Guest Access feature using the Linksys app on your mobile device.
