Re: router security using guest access
said by planet:Depends on how the vendor implements "guest" wireless. Truth be told, there's no standard for this.
My question, is there any way you are more vulnerable leaving your guest access on when not in use?
Some just do a 2nd SSID. Others offer full isolation from your main LAN.
For $99, I'd expect something that "just works" and nothing more.
Thanks for the responses. Not much chatter about this subject on the net at all. I will enable it when necessary and disable it for peace of mind. Was hoping that I could simply leave it enabled. But with no standard, the potential for exploit could be there.
