DescriptionSetting
By default, the access point/router broadcasts its SSID so that WiFi clients can detect the
WiFi name (SSID) in their scanned network lists. To turn off the SSID broadcast, clear the
Enable SSID Broadcast check box. Turning off the SSID broadcast provides additional
WiFi security, but users must know the SSID to be able to join the WiFi network of the access
point/router.

If you change the WiFi security, select one of the following WiFi security options for the
access point/router’s WiFi network:
None. An open WiFi network does not provide any security. Any WiFi device can join
the network. We recommend that you do not use an open WiFi network but configure
WiFi security.
WPA2-PSK [AES]. For the Wireless 1 network, this option is the default setting and the
default WiFi passphrase (sharedsecret) is printed on the access point/router label (see
Access point/router label on page 14). For the Wireless 2 and Wireless 3 networks, if
you do not change the passphrase, the default passphrase (sharedseceret) displays.
This type of security enables WiFi devices that support WPA2 to join the access
point/router’s WiFi network. WPA2 provides a secure connection but some older WiFi
devices do not detect WPA2 and support only WPA. If your network includes such older
devices, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] security.
If you change the passphrase, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters.
To join the access point/router’s WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. This type of security enables WiFi devices that
support either WPA or WPA2 to join the access point/router’s WiFi network. However,
WPA-PSK [TKIP] is less secure than WPA2-PSK [AES] and limits the speed of WiFi devices
to 54 Mbps.
To use this type of security, in the Passphrase field, enter a phrase of 8 to 63 characters.
To join the access point/router’s WiFi network, a user must enter this passphrase.
WPA/WPA2 Enterprise. This type of security requires that your WiFi network can access
a RADIUS server. For information about configuring WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, see Configure
WPA and WPA2 Enterprise WiFi security on page 65.

9. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
If you connected over WiFi to the network and you changed the SSID, you are
disconnected from the network.
10. Make sure that you can reconnect over WiFi to the network with its new settings.
If you cannot connect over WiFi, check the following:
