Default guest access

Can you tell me what I would need to allow a guest device, internet access but not give them access to my LAN?

Default Re: guest access

Put the guest network on a different subnet on your router, if it doesn't automatically do this already when enabling "Guest mode".

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Google Pixel XL

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

What @carnageX said. Otherwise you can put firewall rules in place to block traffic between your LAN and guest network. Depends on what router you have.
