Introduction

Business WiFi Pro allows you to create Private WiFi and Guest WiFi networks from within the WiFi Pro Portal. Once you create a network, you can configure SSID scheduling, bandwidth management, content filtering and a landing page.

Note: Please be advised, any feature or configuration change will cause the WiFi Pro Access Point(s) to reboot. Both Private and Guest networks will go offline for 3 to 6 minutes as the change is applied.

Create a Private WiFi network

The Private WiFi network is the network you will use to run your business. This network is only made available to employees and authorized users. The WiFi Pro Private network will replace the existing Standard WiFi Private network provided by the Business Wireless Gateway (BWG) device, if applicable.

Navigate to the WiFi Pro Portal. Once signed in to your account, you will be prompted to create a new WiFi network.

Note: By default, Business WiFi Pro broadcasts two networks when the account is created: "Private WiFi Default" and "Public WiFi Default."

  1. Step 1:

    Select Add WiFi Network.

  2. Step 2:

    Select the Private network type.

  3. Step 3:

    Enter your preferred WiFi Network Name. This will be broadcasted for your employees and authorized users to connect to the network.

  4. Step 4:

    Select the default security WPA2/WPA PSK.

  5. Step 5:

    Create a password.

  6. Step 6:

    Select Save.

  7. Step 7:

    Set the network to On to enable the newly created private network.

Note: A maximum of eight Private and Guest networks can be created on Business WiFi Pro, with a limit of four networks On at any given time.

Create a Guest WiFi network

The Guest WiFi network is a public network provided to your customers as a convenience and benefit for doing business at your establishment. The network is most-often left unsecured but can be secured if you wish to provide a common password to your guests.

Navigate to the WiFi Pro Portal. Once signed in to your account, you will be prompted to create a new WiFi network.

Note: By default, Business WiFi Pro broadcasts two networks when the account is created: "Private WiFi Default" and "Public WiFi Default."

  1. Step 1:

    Select Add WiFi Network.

  2. Step 2:

    Select the Guest network type.

  3. Step 3:

    Enter your preferred WiFi Network Name. This will be broadcast to your customers to connect to the network.

  4. Step 4:

    Select Open from the Security dropdown, unless you want to implement a password-protected guest network.

  5. Step 5:

    Select Save.

  6. Step 6:

    Set the network to On to enable the newly-created guest network.

Note: A maximum of eight Private and Guest networks can be created on Business WiFi Pro, with a limit of four networks On at any given time.
