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

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

tab at the top.

wireless settings page
