How to setup Google Nest WiFi – part 6 – Enabling Guest WiFi

When setting up Google Nest Wifi, it might be a good idea to also configure a Guest network for when a house guest visits. So in this video we look at how you enable Guest WiFi on a Google Nest Wifi network.

The advantage in running a Guest wireless network, is that it will isolate a device from being able to see or connect to the devices on your Primary wireless network.

Quick reference notes:

  • Open the Google Home app
  • Select the Settings
  • From within Settings choose Nest WiFi
  • In the Primary network panel, locate and select the option called Guest network
  • Toggle on Guest Network
  • In the Network name field give your new Guest WiFI network an easy to recognise name.
  • Using the Password field assign a password to your Guest network.

Notes: The Guest WiFi password must be more that 8 characters in length.

  • Select Save

Notes: When you select Save, your Guest network will be automatically created. You now need to check that a device can connect to your new Guest wireless network.
