In addition to "traditional" Guest
Access, where a separate WPA Pre-Shared Key and on some occasions a
separate SSID is used for Guest Access, the N+ Router and
Modem-Router offer an additional method of Guest Access, called
Guest Access can be configured via its
own page in the web interface. When Hotel Style Guest Access is
selected, you will need to specify an SSID and password.
In Hotel Style Guest Access, the clients
will see an open wireless network with the Guest SSID, there is no
encryption for it. When a client connects, the first time they try
to access the web, they are prompted for the password.
Once the password has been entered,
the client can access the Internet.
For this feature to work correctly, it
is necessary that the client uses the router as DNS server. If the
client uses manually specified DNS servers, e.g. the OpenDNS ones,
Hotel Style Guest Access will not work straight away. A work-around
is to access the password prompt on the router's IP address: go to
http://192.168.2.1, enter the
password and access the Internet.
