How to set a blank password for guest network

Many of us working from home, so I am a developer and I need to connect an IoT device to my network and I need to test connecting it to a network with no password. Please don't lecture me about security, I have been working in software for 20+ years. I only need a small window of time to perform this test. So how do I set a ""  (blank, empty) password on this router? SSH into the router and edit a file?

We're here to help with setting up your guest Wi-Fi password, @jefffin.

 

Here is information on how to access your gateway interface. The gateway user interface lets you customize your Wi-Fi gateway settings, including changing your Wi-Fi network name, password and settings.

 

You can also use the smart home manager to customize your network settings. 

 

Let us know if this helps.

@morph27 thank you! I was just looking at the "basic" settings. After your comment I still didn't see it, but believed you and read through the page and found the hard to see link for "advanced" settings. Then the option appeared and I was able to do what I needed. Thanks again!

No problem. Good to know you got what you need. Sorry I forgot to mention clicking Advanced Options.
