Ignite Wi-Fi Guest Access

I'm Here A Lot

Really want to set up a separate guest Wifi network with its own password instead of giving guests access to the main Wi-Fi and then assigning their devices to the guest profile which makes no sense. Once they have the password they can add any device they want and can also see the other devices on the network. When will this feature be added?

We will get support for Guest Wi-Fi Networks when Comcast implements the feature.  However, I still can't see this happening anytime soon.  I have searched the Internet and EVERY Comcast X1 licensee has customers asking for this feature and no service provider has been able to say when this might ever get implemented... including Comcast, when their own customers asked for Guest Network support.

Comcast's solution for guest access is their hotspot service.  It's a revenue source for them, and they seem keen to protect that by not implementing support for free guest access in their gateways.  Technically, it would be a trivial feature to implement.  They just don't want to.

Hello, can someone please let me know if you can set up a guess network on the CBM4331 hub. The Mywifi app is not compatible to set this up on the app. I will not connect to the modem/hub.

 

Thank you in advance for your suggestion on how to get this done.
