Guest Access offers security for the Guest network.  By default, it uses the classic hotspot style called Cafe-style which provides no encryption and only prompts for a Guest password.  However, you can change it to use WPA/WPA2 PSK or WEP for added encryption or leave it completely Open.
 
You can also change the Network Name (SSID) for your Guest network, or customize a password for your guests to use if you chose the Cafe-style, WPA/WPA2 PSK, or WEP security types.  This will be the password your guests will use to connect to the Guest network.
 
Step 5:
Click User-added image.

You should now have configured the Guest Access feature on your Belkin AC1600 Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Router, F9K1119.
