Re: Chaining wireless routers safely

There are routers which support a separate guest network. That is probably the best approach...

Do these guest network still have password/key prompts to use it? I don't want neighbors/outside strangers to use my wifi.

I happen to use an older ZyXEL NBG334W router with a separate guest network function. It works very well for my usage...

The guest WLAN and private LAN/WLAN are completely isolated from one another and both are password/passphrase protected. In my case I use WPA2-Personal (aka WPA2-PSK [AES]) on both networks.
