Create a guest network (ZyXEL)

Create a guest network on your ZyXEL Modem to securely share internet access with friends

Not your modem?

A guest network is a secondary network that provides secure internet access for your guests. This network can have a different password from your main network. Devices connected to the guest network will be able to access the internet, but not other shared files, printers, network storage, etc.

Guest Network Setup ( ZyXEL VSG-1432)


To set up or modify your guest network, you will have to log into your modem. In order to do so, type in 192.168.1.254 into the address bar of your web browser.

Use the username and password fields at the top right of the page to log in. The username is admin and the password is telus unless you have changed the default settings. If you have previously changed the default settings and can’t remember your password, you will have to restore your router to default settings.

Once you have logged in, click on the Wireless tab at the top.

On the wireless settings page , select the Additional WLANs tab.

Then, click on the icon under Modify on the right side of the page on the same line as Guest1 SSID. See the red box below.
