Will BT Whole Home Wifi one day support a guest network

Hi,

 

Does anyone know if this device might one day support a guest network.

 

I'm very tempted to give up on the Whole home and go for the Google Wifi which does support slightly better parental time controls as well as guest network.

 

If its on its way - I will consider keeping the BT unit as speed wise it is superior.

Re: Will BT Whole Home Wifi one day support a guest network

If anyone starts a "HH7 Wishlist" thread or similar, it would probably be a good idea to add guest networks as a desired feature if you think it is useful or important.  I think it has merit from a security perspective, in that it separates the trust domains of private trusted LAN and invited but less trusted guests.

 

It's also a natural fit for IPv6, in which the delegated large /56 block is normally structured as multiple smaller /64 blocks each with a different purpose around the house or site, and with different firewall settings for different trust domains.
