So here's the situation. My wife works from home so she needs the Wi-Fi all day. We have three children but for one of them, we need to restrict his Internet time. But I don't want it affecting when my wife is working. Basically, could I setup two Wi-Fi so we can restrict access to one of them? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Depening on who you ISP is they may already have that feature for you. I know Xfinity/Comcast does. I believe is does it by device that logs into the network Also some router manufactures have similar features like Netgear.

    There is a concept Guest Network, that can be set a different access option for what you want now. To do it, it is needed to check if the router supports this procedure. It is used to create a second network, while it allows internet access, but prevents those users from accessing the primary network. If you have WAP that has Guest Network settings, then you can set that up for a separate SSID.

    For your easiness & better understanding, please link here for a good support from Linksys: https://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=140727

    Though it is Linksys, but this concept you can apply on other routers also.

    You might consider look at Google Wi-Fi. They're the simplest and most powerful Wi-Fi solution I've come across. You could setup multiple APs with unique SSIDs. Or just setup a guest network...but then that defeats the purpose/ability of having a guest network for short-term use.
