How to set up a password and enable guest mode for Netgear router?

It is not a smart idea at all to share your Wi-Fi password even though that is what most people do. This problem is just not sharing the Wi-Fi password but it also makes your home network vulnerable to those with intensions to steal your data or information. It allows them to access files on your computer and devices connected on your network. Having an open network is like inviting a thief to steal your valuables. User should have their network password protected to ensure that their IP address is not misused. Having an open network not allows anyone to connect on to your network but also increases the risk of having your identity stolen. So when anyone is asking for your Wi-Fi password it is better to set up a guest network with limited access. Below mention steps by Netgear technical support will guide you on setting up a password to network and enabling guest mode.
·         Login to the router login page.
·         Select Wireless->Wireless Settings on the left side menu to open the wireless setting page.
·         SSID: Set a new name for your wireless network.
Channel: It is better to be located to 1, 6 or 11 than Auto.
“Enable Wireless Router Radio” and “Enable SSID Broadcast” should be both ticked.
For dual band wireless routers, you can configure the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless separately.
·         Click Save to save your settings.
·         Note: After clicking on Save button, you will see a tip (red line) at the bottom of the page. But actually there is no need to reboot at here and we will reboot the router at the end of the configurations
·         Select Wireless->Wireless Security on the left side menu and check WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WPA/WPA2 Personal.
Version: WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK
Encryption: TKIP or AES
PSK Password: make up your WIFI password, also called Wireless Network Key. (the length of PSK Password is between 8 and 63 characters)
For dual band wireless routers, you can configure the security of 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless separately.
·         Click Save to save your settings.
·         Select Systems Tools ->Reboot on the left side menu. Reboot the router to make all the settings take effect.
·         When you are logged into router login page on the left side you will see an option to set up guest network, user just needs to click on that enable it and save the changes. This makes your guest network ON which helps you not to share your Wi-Fi password.
