Not being a fan of WiFi passwords, I wish to have an open network; at least for Guests.

Unfortunately I haven't seen any ability within the current range of WiFi routers to enable QoS for specific users on the network. They're mostly traffic/port derived, and hardly any popular brands are L7 capable.

What would you recommend as the most capable router that would be able to:

  • QoS per user
  • Guest WiFi (most these days I assume?)

Thank you.

I'd suggest using Mikrotik device with RouterOS. Although it takes some knowledge of how things work, to set it up. But it can do both things - per User QoS and multiple SSIDs.
