Wireless router with guest access


Distinguished Member
I'm looking for a new ADSL router that can have a guest WiFi network, which allows me to have different web filtering rules per network. Specifically, I want to lock the 'guest' WiFi down to a specific domain only.

I've previously used Netgear routers, but I cant find a model that does what I want. They allow a guest network, but don't allow you to have separate filtering rules.

Any suggestions?


I would look at Tomato and DD-WRT firmware and see if either offer the functionality you're looking for, then choose a router that is on their supported list. I doubt any standard SOHO router would offer this function as most guest WiFi simply allows access to the internet and firewalls it from your local network.

I can achieve what I want by using a separate router just acting as a wireless access point, but I was really hoping to have the functionality in just one box.
