    Yes. You can set up a guest network. However, I have disabled mine simply due to the fact that guests are usually family members and I don't feel like they are any risk to my network. But it is easy to setup. During setup it gives you the option to create a guest network and you can set the attributes based on however much access or bandwidth you give your guests. In my case, if I use the guest option, the guests receive only G speed connection. The N is reserved for my own wireless stuff. Nowadays with the 3rd gen versions, if your ISP can deliver consistent GB speed >1gbps, you can reserve the N band for your guests and use the 802.11 ac for your own equip. Unfortunately for me, MY ISP is not capable of gigabit speed.
