Recommended Guest Settings?

What settings should I use to enable guest usage in my house? If I broadcast the guest SSID does everyone in the neighborhood see it? If I don't, how does a guest connect to it? Should I set a password? What security setting should I use?

Re: Recommended Guest Settings?

To enable guest access, open Netgear Genie > Router Settings > Guest Access > Modify. Tick "Enable Guest Access" > Provide an SSID and Password and use WPA2 Encryption. If you broadcast SSID, everyone within range of the router signal should be able to see it. If you don't broadcast SSID, your guest won't be able to connect because they won't see the signal.
