Checking the Guest Network password

The Guest network is a feature of the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi routers and the Linksys X-series gateways that creates a separate network for guests.  This secured network provides Internet access to wireless devices, with the router limiting communication with other computers and doesn't allow file and printer access.  It has a different password from the main network.
 
NOTE:  The E2100L and E900 do not have Guest access feature.
