Re: Need guest network access

@bmc 

Thank you. I’ll have a look.

Incidentally, would you have any opinion on which (brand) routers offer the most straightforward settings for Firewall implementation. I am somewhat embarrassed that in the past I have often become quite confused by all the “allow this” “deny that” commands.

I have very simple/uncomplicated requirements and find that the “turn on the firewall with its default settings” is adequate for my needs. sadly the last (non Plusnet) router I used seemed overly complicated with commands which almost appeared “double negatives”. I even contacted customer support but that didn’t seem to help much!

I discovered the link didn't work in IE11 (my default browser as I'm set in my ways). It did work when copied to FireFox and I would guess Chrome.

 

Can't help with firewalls. I use the default PlusNet unit (which is a re-badged BT HH5) and have never played with any firewall settings.

Re: Need guest network access

Thanks for all replies/help.

Just to update; I’ve just purchased a Fritzbox 7530 and am hoping that the initial/basic setup is straightforward.
