How to Set up Separate Guest WiFi CGM4140COM Gateway. I want to set up a separate SSID for guests. I do not want them connecting to my secured home network. I see the guest account in the Ignite WiFi app, but no way to set up the actual WiFi. In other words I don't want guest to require my network password. I want to set up and be able to regularly change my guest access.
@SonnyTheMoney Welcome to the Community!
FYI, others have asked for this feature as well: https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/Ignite-TV/Enable-Guest-Mode-on-Ignite-TV-Modem-Router/m-p/4526...
Comcast, unfortunately, will probably never implement guest WiFi networks on the XB6. Instead, they enable public WiFi hotspots on their customers' XB6 gateways that guests can use for Internet connectivity.
FYI, we do not have Guest WiFi on the XB6 because Comcast implemented a different solution for their customers: Xfinity WiFi Home Hotspots
The advantage with their approach is that guests' network traffic goes out on a different logical connection from the customer's Internet traffic, so Comcast can track it separately and guest traffic does not get counted in a customer's data usage.
It is also possible that something might be changing in Comcast-land because come December 17, 2020, Xfinity WiFi On Demand passes will no longer be available for purchase. That would mean no guest WiFi for non-Comcast customers.
I don't know why they are doing this. Perhaps the WiFi passes were not the cash cow that they had hoped it would be... or... they are just closing a loophole where Comcast customers started using free Xfinity WiFi passes when they hit their data caps... or... perhaps Comcast has buckled from all the pressure and will FINALLY allow their users (and their Cable Co customers' customers) to just simply configure a separate Guest WiFi network.
