Might need a little more information on your exact setup.

Do you have just the Modem, modem + pods, modem + eero modules, etc.

Ok, but which modem? 
There are quite a few different models in used by rogers, depending on your plans, and it can vary from one to another.

@jj59  Unfortunately, the XB6 does not currently allow you to set up a secondary Wi-Fi Guest Network with a separate password for visitors.  The only workaround that I can think of is to purchase an inexpensive router or access point for this purpose.

Thanks for the clarification. I hope someone from Rogers is reading this who can pass my disappointment along. I find it absolutely shocking that a guest network is not available on the router. I just got set up last night and I couldn't believe it when I saw it was missing. I have NEVER seen a router (ISP provided or not) without this option. It is completely unacceptable to me. Now I have to purchase another router just to keep guests off my main network segment where my home devices are. Rogers, please fix this ASAP.

Is there a way to track feature requests from users? That would be a great addition to this forum. And even better if there was a status update from Rogers too.

Re: Enable Guest Mode on Ignite TV Modem/Router

I just switched to Ignite Wifi. Could someone advise on the procedure how to set up a guest Wifi in Ignite Wifi where my guests can connect to and use a different Wifi password than the host Wifi? Thanks.
