If I want to share my internet with roommates, but I don't want them to be able to change my WiFi network password or login to my modem, is there a way to set up a separate "guest" login?
We can see if we can help you out with that. What modem do you have? And are you using a separate router, or just the Shaw WiFi modem?
I have the same question. I just upgraded to Arris XB6 modem.
Unfortunately, the XB6 modem does not have a "guest" login feature available. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for the reply, Tony. I could not find this guest function either. I thought there must be a solution.
I am thinking to add a router behind the modem. Can you please give a procedure about how to configure the Gateway and Router to make the router physically separate from the home network? I hear we can have a second IP address... If you have an established procedure to achieve this that you can share, that would be very helpful.
If you want to set up your own router, your best bet is to put the XB6 into bridge mode first. This will disable the WiFi signal on the modem so that you can use your own router. You can find the steps to do this on How to set up bridge mode on the XB6 Advanced WiFi Modem
