Configure, assign, and save your settings.
Go to Wireless > SSIDs and click Settings.
Configure basic settings for your SSID.
Enter a name. SSIDs are case-sensitive and must satisfy the following criteria:
- A minimum of 1 printable character.
- A maximum of 32 printable characters.
- No space at the beginning or end of name.
We recommend that you use ASCII printable characters to avoid display errors on client devices.
Select the encryption mode. When using an enterprise authentication method, you also need to configure a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server for your local network.
We recommend that you use WPA2 instead of WPA as it doesn't use TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol).
Select the encryption algorithm. The default algorithm is Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
We recommended that you use this as it is a quick and strong cipher and is widely accepted.
Enter a passphrase to protect the SSID from unauthorized access. Your passphrase can have up to 63 ASCII printable characters and it must have at least 8 characters.
Select the frequency band. The access points assigned to this SSID will transmit on the selected frequency band(s).
We recommend that you use the 5 GHz frequency band for Voice over IP (VoIP) communication. It has higher performance, lower latency, and less interference.
Enable mesh mode
You can create a mesh network between access points for a single hop. If you wish to disable the mesh network, you must delete the SSID.
Only one mesh network per SSID is allowed.
Assign one or more access points to your SSID. Each access point can have a maximum of eight SSIDs per band.
Multiple Access Points: Assign the available and registered access points.
Add Access Points later: Assign the access points later by editing the SSID.
Save your basic settings.
- Enable SSID: You can enable the SSID that you just created. If you wish to disable the SSID, deactivate after saving your configuration.
