Wifi guest access to lan, but without Internet

Status: New Idea



It would be fine if I could make guest access to the network (for some local resources), but guests wouldn't have access to use Internet.

Perhaps a workaround but it might fit in your setup...


- Create a guest network with captive portal

- select ‘simple password’ as authentication method but dont share this pasword

- at the bottom you can add the ip or ip range that guests can access before authorization.


Other vendors call this a ‘walled garden’

Thanks for advice, but it is not a solution.
Main point is that everyone would have access to that ip or ip range without giving a password, which I didn't share.
I would like to give access for guest to some ip in network, but after their authorization.

So I need to have password and share this password with guests.

An even more hacky approach is to create your guest network with WPA2-PSK


Alternative option could be to go with VLAN and block traffic to your internet gateway.
