Wi-Fi as WAN – AEP

This feature is only available on certain products and models (not available with all devices).

If you already enabled both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), you cannot enable Wi-Fi as WAN.

To setup Wi-Fi as WAN:

  1. Go to Wireless > Wi-Fi as WAN.
  2. Under Configuration, check the Enabled box.
  3. Click Submit.
  4. Under Available Wi-Fi Networks, the system displays detected Wi-Fi networks that you can join. The table shows SSID, Security Mode and the Signal Strength. Choose the Wi-Fi network you want to join by clicking on the name link.
  5. The Add Saved Network dialog box appears with network details. Ensure this information is correct and modify if necessary.
  6. Click Finish to add the network
  7. Or if you don’t see your desired network under Available Wi-Fi Networks, click Add Network.
  8. Enter the following information regarding your chosen network:

a. Network Name
c. Security Mode: None, WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA-2, or WPA2-PSK
d. WPA Algorithm: TKIP+AES, TKIP, or AES (completion of this field depends on security mode selected)
e. Shared Key (completion of this field depends on security mode selected)
f. Unmask (Check or Uncheck)

  9. Click Finish.
10. Under Saved Wi-Fi Networks, the table displays the network you just entered and saved. Click the checkbox next to your network so the device automatically joins it.
11. To save your changes, Click Save and Restart.

You may also restart Wi-Fi by clicking Reset Wi-Fi in the lower left corner of the Configuration section.

Note: The AEP Conduit does not support Concurrent WiFi Mode (i.e. Concurrent Wi-Fi Access Point and Wi-Fi as WAN at 5G). The mLinux version does support this feature.
