WiFi[edit | edit source]

The WiFi section is used to configure the router's WiFi access points (APs). The router supports two types of WiFi: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. 2.4 GHz WiFi provides better coverage and works at a longer range, but has lower data transfer speeds when compared to 5 GHz WiFi.

Channel WiFi channel number | auto; default: auto WiFi channel used by the access point. When this field is set to 'auto', the access point will choose the least populated channel.
ESSID string; default: RUT_<last 4 symbols of WiFi MAC>_<frequency> The Extended Service Set Identifier (ESSID) is an identification string (name) for the access point. It is how the access point will be seen by connecting devices.
Encryption No encryption | WPA-PSK | WPA2-PSK | WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Mixed Mode | WPA-EAP | WPA2-EAP; default: WPA2-PSK The type of encryption used by the access point.
