Hi Bleeps,


I have a Linksys E4200 V1 and for years I never had any problems with guest access. But as of about one year, the Wi-Fi icon on my Win10 toolbar has shown an exclamation point on the Wi-Fi guest access icon, and no matter what I try, no one can logon using the guest access, including me.


My regular secured Wi-Fi access is not affected in any way, it works great.

There is no exclamation point on my regular secured Wi-Fi icon.

Changing the guest access password does not remove the exclamation point on the Wi-Fi guest access icon.

Using the Win10 troubleshooter does not fix the problem.

I have not changed any of the hardware or software.

Rebooting the router does not help, nor does rebooting the modem, nor rebooting anything else.


I bought a new router (Asus RRT-AC68U) and I was planning to replace the Linksys E4200 V1 with it this summer, but I suppose I could do it now if it’s going to be a PITA to address the problem.

Well in my mind it makes little since to mess around with your old router if your just going to replace it with something you already have on hand.

I would suggest biting the bullet and setting up the new router.


Good luck.

Have you backed up today? Did you backup your backup?
