The Managed Wi-Fi portal lets you manage the network name and password for each Wi-Fi network, as well as settings such as Content filtering. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Wi-Fi Portal in a browser and log in with your My Account username and password.
  2. Select the Sites tab from the left menu and select View next to the site you want to update.

  3. Select the Edit SSID icon next to the network you want to update.

  4. Select the toggle button next to Enabled to enable the network if necessary.

The Edit SSID window has 3 tabs to manage your settings: General, Content filtering and Options.

  • The General tab is where you can manage your network name, password and security options.
    • If the Security Zone is set to Secure, you must include a password for access.
    • The password must be at least 8 characters. We recommend including at least 1 uppercase letter, 1 number and 1 special character.
    • Once the changes are applied, all devices connected to the network will be disconnected. Each device needs to be reconnected with the new Wi-Fi credentials.
    • If the Security Zone is set to Guest, you can disable the password by changing the Encryption Type to NONE.
  • The Content filtering tab lets you set an automatic filter for “Security,” “pornography” or “mature content.”
  • The Options tab lets you assign a VLAN number or limit bandwidth for users.
