Guest Wireless

I have an R6300 with guest wireless enabled. Is there a way to give limited access to a guest wireless connection?

To be specific, I have a Netgear ReadyNas that has video on it. I would like to be able to stream that video to a guest wireless connection over the LAN, without having to incur internet bandwidth.

Is this possible somehow?

Thanks Jim. Not what I was hoping for, but it saves me a bunch of time.

If you have ReadyNAS http://netgear.com/landing/storage/for_business.html#1

Now you can have little more permission but not with READYSHARE ( NOT ReadyNAS) on R6300

Using True NAS will have user/pass within GUI of NAS or you can even bring AD server to control the user account instead of rely on guest wireless that limits.

Yes, I could do that. I have a bunch of PC's in the house that are not password protected, and I don't want to put passwords on them. Giving a guest lan access would expose that information.

Would it work to put the readynas in a dmz? Would that allow video streaming traffic to stay within the lan when streaming from a guest wireless?
