Create a guest network on Actiontec T1200H/T2200H modems to securely share internet access with friends.

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 business 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 (Actiontec T1200H/T2200H)

If you have an Actiontec T1200H or T2200H Modem, you can create a guest network.

To set up or modify your guest network, you need to log into your modem by entering

into the address bar of your web browser.

To log in to your modem, find the admin login information located on the sticker on the side of the modem. Enter the information in the username and password fields at the top right of the page.

Note
: If you've previously changed the default settings and can’t remember your password, you'll have to
reset your business router to default settings
.
