Valet: Featuring… Guest Access

- September 28, 2010 - 0 Comments

Increasing popularity of smartphones, laptops, and other WiFi-enabled devices makes the ability to get online wherever you are a necessity. In public areas, there are often hotposts and other public WiFi networks, but how do you connect when at someone else’s home? And when you host guests, do you ever feel awkward giving out the password to your wireless network?

Valet makes it easy to set up guest wireless access when friends or family come to visit.  With a completely separate wireless connection, guests can use their laptops or mobile phones around the house, while the main Valet home network remains secure and private.

To set-up your guest network, open Cisco Connect from the desktop of the computer you used to set-up your Valet. Select “Guest Access” from the menu, and a network name and password will be generated. Give this information to your guests so that they can keep connected when at your place without compromising the privacy of your home wireless network.
