Can guest access be used with routers from other manufacturers?

The FRITZ!Powerline adapter's guest access can only be used with a FRITZ!Box.

In a FRITZ!Box home network, the FRITZ!Powerline adapter's guest access can provide an additional guest network with its own settings. The guest access cannot be used with routers from a different manufacturer.

If your router has its own guest access function, you can extend the range of this guest network with the FRITZ!Powerline adapter. To do so, connect the FRITZ!Powerline adapter with the router's guest network. In this case, make sure that the FRITZ!Powerline adapter only extends the router's guest network and not the router's conventional wireless network.
