Guest network lease time needs to be adjustable!!!

[ Edited ]

hey Linksys Engineers you needd to fix your guest network!

 

We ended up deploying four nodes into a nice huge house here recently and this client tends to have a lot of people over who need to use his guest network for work and little did we know that the lease time is so ridiculously short and you can't adjust it? Ironicially in the same week a Dr's office we put two nodes in started experiencing the same issue.

Right now it only works for one hour? Come on, what is wrong with you guys this should be an easy to configure setting? Linksys that's ridiculous, it should at least be 2-4 hours and adjustable especially if the nodes are acting as the router. I am even on the beta FW_WHW03_1.1.2.186205 firmware and there are still no options to change it. Please make it a priority in future updates as this is ridiculous that it can't even be adjusted. Thanks.

Hi, EdStevensThis seems odd, since the Velop's Guest network don't have a lease time when connected to it. To sort this out, do you mean when connecting to the network, it will only allocate an hour to the device connected and then will be disconnected after? How many devices are connected at the same time on the network?

Carl,

 

Look at the leaselength time above, that is what the Velop sent down to my Macbook air, 3600 seconds or one hour. At the time there were only three devices connected to it. Either way that feature still needs to be added into the guest network functionality.
