How to set up Guest WiFi network on Tenda AC10 router
A guest WiFi is basically a secondary WiFi network that you create to give an access point to the internet without sharing your primary network which your devices are connected to.
Why this is important is to get rid of potential security threats in your network.
Let's say for instance a visitor's device is infected with malware. If he/she goes ahead and connects to your primary network in which your home devices are connected, the malware may spread within the local network and infect those devices.
On the other hand, if the infected device is connected to the internet via the guest WiFi, it won't affect the other devices within your home network.
By having Guest WiFi, you will be both hospitable to your guests and keep your local network safe.
Most routers allow the creation of a Guest WiFi network via the admin control panel (a web interface). However, the procedure of doing it is different and varies from one router model to the other.
In this article, I will show you how to create and set up a Guest WiFi network on the Tenda AC10 router.
