SiteManager 1149/3349 WiFi connection types & conditions

______________________________________________________________________________

Purpose

______________________________________________________________________________

These are the types of WiFi connections that a SiteManager 1149/3349 will be able to connect to to allow secure remote access

______________________________________________________________________________

Information

______________________________________________________________________________

The Secomea SiteManager 1149/3349 has an integrated 2.4GHz WiFi module for Client mode, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n

note: WiFi settings on this page are only relevant when no external WiFi USB adapter is inserted.

  • SSID :
    Wireless Network Name also called SSID. The SSID must match that of the access point (AP) that this SiteManager should connect to. If both SSID and WiFi Key are left blank, the SiteManager will attempt to connect to the default SSID "sitemanager".
  • WiFi Key :
    Enter the Key as an ASCII string from 8 to 63 of length. WPA/TKIP or WPA2/AES-CCMP will be tried for negotiation. If both SSID and WiFi Key are left blank, the SiteManager will automatically try using its DEV1 MAC address as key (in lower case, no colons; e.g. 00c0a2123456).


  • The Scan function will show the access points in range, and will also indicate if the WiFi Adapter was successful in connecting to the configured SSID, and if the WiFi Key was accepted.

Hint: The default SSID and WiFi Key allows you to quickly make the SiteManager get Internet access using your smartphone as hotspot, without having to configure these WiFi settings. Just enter the tethering menu (aka. Internet Sharing or Mobile Hotspot) of your smartphone and configure "sitemanager" as SSID and the SiteManager's DEV1 MAC address as WiFi Key.

Troubleshooting:

The result of the Scan action may indicate "Connected", even if the key is wrong. To firmly determine if the connection was successful, enter the Status > Network menu and verify that the UPLINK2 interface has received an IP address.

If not, check your WiFi settings and try rebooting the SiteManager.

Also check that the signal quality (SQ) is acceptable. If not try relocate the SiteManager relative to the access point.

Also note that SiteManager will connect to 2.4GHz WiFi networks only.
