Guest SSID

Your ARIA3411 Mesh System supports the creation of a wireless guest network. A guest network enables you to allow temporary visitors to access your wireless Internet connection without revealing your primary network password(s). Computers connected to the guest network can access the Internet connection only, and have no access to other computers or devices on the wireless or wired network.

There are two ways you can access and edit your Guest Network (SSID):
