    How to set up 2 networks at home; 1 for kids and guest, and 1 as Primary

    by sirsupernova ·

    I currently have a primary network set up at home, I would like to segment it as Network A and Network B, so I am able to block social platforms, and YouTube on Network B during school hours for kids.

    Currently, I have been using OpenDNS which works quite well however when I block a site or sites, it is blocked throughout the entire network, I would like to have two networks set up; 1 with OPENDNS and the primary without any restrictions. I would highly appreciate any help.

    Thank you.

      I get a router with a Guest network. It might also have to have parental controls. Be sure to talk to sales at the usual Netgear number/contacts at netgear.com

        Already have a guest network on primary router which doesn’t offer a desired solution.

          You have to shop around for a router that does what you want or create your own with some (usually Linux based) dedicated, programmable router. That option is pretty advanced but when a client wants something not available in off the shelf gear we turn to (and yes it’s costly) customized router solutions.
