    Do you have an idea how I can create a separate SSID password on my WiFi network for visitors who want to use AirPlay? We have AT&T U-verse (the res gateway is our wifi router) as well as an Time Machine, Apple TV (2nd gen), and 3 AirPort Express units attached to speakers in separate rooms. We'd like to maintain a secure password for our WiFi network with the Time Machine, three AirPort Express units, and two laptops. However, we'd like to be able to have guests "tap into" the AirPlay capabilities but then turn off this capability when their gone.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Some routers support a "guest" option for a Wi-Fi connection limiting the access guests have from normal users. Check to see if your router supports a separate guest SSID and see if you can restrict what guests have access to.
